+ - Dotster Hijacks Their Customers' Subdomains

Submitted by mo
mo (2873) writes "Recently, Dotster's DNS service has made a massive, potentially illegal change that has gone largely unnoticed. They now redirect DNS queries for any of their customer's unused subdomains to a spam page that serves up ads. For example, www.asterisk.org is a popular open source PBX project who gets it's DNS from Dotster, but bogus.asterisk.org redirects to Dotster's page of ads. This policy has been imposed on all of their customers without informing them. Any domain who has ns1.nameresolve.com as their primary nameserver is being subjected to it."

I am more bored than you could ever possibly be. Go back to work.
