Journal Philip K Dickhead's Journal: Presstv.ir and Presstv.com are DOWN 4

Just after they announced two terror-bombings at mosques, with credit claimed by the US-funded Jundallah.

Has the war begun today?

I cannot get a DNS referral for either site from 7 different networks - this looks to be a block at DNS root servers. Very usefull.

  • Thanks for the headsup man. Now I won't be able to sleep much. Whenever the big iran shoot em up starts, I am beating feet to the truckstop and filling every fuel can I have, although half of them are full already ;) My vehicle I always keep full anyway, or above 3/4s, put it that way. The price of crude will hit 300 clams a barrel within..hours maybe, who knows..

    full root server block? How often does this happen, and is there a tie in with that huge blogging site takedown do ya think?

    The answer is "no", and you of all people should know better.

    Jundallah sponsored attacks occur with semi-regularity in southern Iran. And IRNA's site seems fine, even if Press TV is down.

    I can't read Farsi, but the English part isn't screaming about anything out of the ordinary.

  • simple:

    $ for n in ` awk ' /^[A-M].ROOT-SERVERS.NET/ && $(NF-1) == "A" { print $NF; }' ${BINDDIR}/named.ca `; do
    dig @$n presstv.ir | tee root.$n ;
    done

    scads of output from iranian and other nameservers, all with empty A records. Run of the mill 'someone goofed'.

Human beings were created by water to transport it uphill.
