Quoting the FBI: through through through through through through

Solve said problem easily by destination NATing those IPs on 53/UDP/TCP 
to your own recursive servers, or dump them on Google at if 
you're so inclined.  Extra bonus result: NAT logs will show who needs a

Or you could just let 'em[1] suffer, BoFH-style.


[1] "'em" in this case is "your customer service reps" who will see a 
'higher than normal call volume' should the FBI's warning mean anything.
