The Netherlands were hit as well. We saw a massive flood of queries for
lockup.zonelabs.com, too. It performed a nice DoS on our client name
You'd think that an unresponsive nameserver would be flagged dead, and such
information be cached. Does anyone know whether that's actually done in Bind
8.3.4? Or perhaps not by default?
Not even a clue-by-four would work with this clown.
