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 220.127.116.11 so now the total list is:
- Google 18.104.22.168: Private and unfiltered. Most popular option.
- CloudFlare 22.214.171.124: Private and unfiltered. New player.
- Quad9 126.96.36.199: Private and security aware. New player that blocks access to malicious domains.
- OpenDNS 188.8.131.52: Old player that blocks malicious domains and offers the option to block adult content.
- Norton DNS 184.108.40.206: Old player that blocks malicious domains and is integrated with their Antivirus.
- CleanBrowsing 220.127.116.11: Private and security aware. New player that blocks access to adult content.
- Yandex DNS 18.104.22.168: Old player that blocks malicious domains. Very popular in Russia.
- Comodo DNS 22.214.171.124: 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 126.96.36.199 ?
BTW: this is not my joke. i stole it :-]
Huhu. Some person proposed to replace 188.8.131.52 184.108.40.206 and the like with 220.127.116.11
This person has my vote.
