 Subject:  New 1.2b10 feature - Blackhole domains?
 Date:  Mon, 12 Sep 2005 15:57:25 -0400
Hi all,

 

            I noticed that beta 10 has the ability to override an entire
domain by specifying a DNS server for that domain...  At first thought, this
sounds like a good feature for a local DNS server to handle your own domain,
where you don't want the outside world to know about all your servers...
But, on second thought, is there any way to use this to blackhole domains?

 

            For example, if we know that evilsoft.com is used by spyware, is
there any way to use this feature to blackhole that domain (without needing
a separate local DNS server)?
