If I really have to spell out the problem. Then I will.
Hijacked Root Servers.
Possibly my presentation has been lacking. For which I apologise. I'm a
spreadsheet guy. BGP is waaaay down the list of "must keep up to date
with" (include bind with that), do's for me and yes it's been ten years
since I had to update DNS or even touch a router bigger than a dlink
My last technical volume on DNS and Bind is the third edition Oreilly,
dated Sep 1998.
My original article appeared to have some technical innacuracy regarding
a no-longer valid costing example. Silly me for not researching more
My memory of all things routing is rusty.
My hypothesis that root servers are the backbone of a country's
successful ecommerce success still stands.
And I assure you that spam and other nasties CAN be managed from a root
server as can redirections and all sorts of other interesting things.
And no apology for top posting. It's what I do when I get all fired up
and am still facing a blank wall staring back.
I guess, you will see what you have been trained to see and I will see
what I have discovered to be correct.
Purpose of the initial posting - to create an environment for the
exchange of ideas and knowledge.
Obviously my ideas and your superior knowledge.
Thank-you for playing.
