wizzy writes "Irelands toplevel domain registry has a notice on Microsoft and Apple DHCP clients sending dynamic DNS updates per RFC2136. The problem is they are not sufficiently careful about where they send it if they are in RFC1918 space - usually used for behind-firewall addressing, which is where they usually are.. This is resulting in bogus updates being sent at the rate of nearly one million an hour to root nameservers, only to be rejected - as reported on the NANOG mailing list."
