I'm sure all of you guys already know about this kind of stuff - but as I was battling with the crappy malware that got installed on my boss' daughter's PC (no - not personal servitude - I did it as a favor because he was at his wit's end), I found out that Norton runs their own DNS servers that block potential malware sites. Anyone see this or have thoughts on it?

Apparently, google offers a DNS site as well...

Yeah, you can actually make a home DNS server as well if you really wanted to. Or if you are nefarious you could get into a network infrastructure create a man in the middle DNS server so when someone typed in USAA they would be giving you their account information.

Its free for non commercial. I trust norton. It wont hinder your internet speed. Sounds like a good deal.

Im confused on how DNS is related to Stuxnet... Should the thread be split?

I am convinced that Stuxnet is my generation's Sputnik.
