some years back I was obsessed by DNS since it’s an often overlooked attack venue and someone draw my attention to malware that changes DNS settings if the host file cannot be changed.
Then there were DNS fragmentation attacks and then various DNS providers came along. I believe OpenDns was the first?
Recently Cloudflare closed the ranks with 22.214.171.124 so now the total list is:
- Google 126.96.36.199: Private and unfiltered. Most popular option.
- CloudFlare 188.8.131.52: Private and unfiltered. New player.
- Quad9 184.108.40.206: Private and security aware. New player that blocks access to malicious domains.
- OpenDNS 220.127.116.11: Old player that blocks malicious domains and offers the option to block adult content.
- Norton DNS 18.104.22.168: Old player that blocks malicious domains and is integrated with their Antivirus.
- CleanBrowsing 22.214.171.124: Private and security aware. New player that blocks access to adult content.
- Yandex DNS 126.96.36.199: Old player that blocks malicious domains. Very popular in Russia.
- Comodo DNS 188.8.131.52: Old player that blocks malicious domains.
Don’t forget to change the DNS in your phone.
Is there a universal DNS logo?
Who will come up with 184.108.40.206 ?
BTW: this is not my joke. i stole it :-]
Huhu. Some person proposed to replace 220.127.116.11 18.104.22.168 and the like with 22.214.171.124
This person has my vote.
