everydns getting pwnzd

everydns, our free DNS provider, seems to be getting pwnzd by a botnet. The attack started last Friday, and the guys at everydns thought they had it fixed by Sunday. They were down again this evening. It's starting to look like maybe everydns is just flat going to lose, so I'm moving DNS to my server. I would expect some service outages due to this.

update 2006-12-06@11:00am: All domains have been switched over to ns1.phauna.org. We're no longer affected by everydns' problems.


  1. we are losing and we won't lose. :-)

    Sorry to see you go but the bad guys won't win; ever. We are standing up to this.

  2. I'm glad to see such resolve and confidence. I wish you the best of luck, because it's a great service, and it would be very sad to see the bad guys win.

    I suppose I'm a bit skeptical because I read this article last month, which talks about how Blue Security ended up folding their company after a botnet attack: http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/14.11/botnet.html
