    IP Numbers Recursive DNS service tries to block phishing hole
    posted by Mueller on Tuesday July 11 2006, @06:44AM

    fnord writes "Wired News reports on OpenDNS, a San Francisco based company using its own DNS servers to provide value added services including faster response times and typo-phishing. Some typos can be automatically corrected; others, if they can't be (re)solved, serve up alternative suggestions, including advertising. This allows their service to be offered free.

    While somewhat reminiscent of VeriSign's suspended SiteFinder service, OpenDNS is quick to point out that they are using recursive nameservers, not authoritative nameservers.



    You can give them a try by changing your nameservers to:

    208.67.222.222

    208.67.220.220

    Their site has substantial information on how to do this for the non-technical. There is no download/install required but perhaps they could offer one in the future a la new.net or various iDNS offerings for the terminally unclued. None of this appears to be new technology or techniques, the real test will be to see if they have the pipes and cache (and cash) to pull it off. -g"

    CircleID has more coverage here [circleid.com] (incl. the never to be missed missives of John Berryhill) and here [circleid.com] (Paul Mockapetris, does it get any better than that?). I still think it's much ado about nothing until they pull it off. I'd run out of fingers naming services that were close, including the internet childsafe blackhole crowd which have mostly crashed and burned. NTL, kudos to Ali for phrasing these links for maximum Google points. :) -g
