With the end result that someone gets some really nicely tainted/blocked address space.  Hopefully whoever it is wears a white hat and doesn't respond to unsuspecting people's DNS queries with 'interesting' values.

"Legal basis": IANAL so no comment.

However, for network sanitation purposes, I'll admit some surprise that the DNSchanger blocks have been reused so quickly.
