Hi Nick and List
Yes it's possible. The dud DNS response in some parts of the internet was
the public IP address being used by their proxy server. I'm not sure what
the proxy is, but it's a windows box. I was going to try to dig trace but
by then the poisoning suddenly stopped happening. Any other ideas on how
to deal with this ? What can I proactively do in case it happens again?
