Submission + - Dotster Hijacks Their Customers' Subdomains

mo 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, is a popular open source PBX project who gets it's DNS from Dotster, but redirects to Dotster's page of ads. This policy has been imposed on all of their customers without informing them. Any domain who has as their primary nameserver is being subjected to it.
