    Default Use of Rogue DNS Servers on Rise



    Mendacious machines controlled by hackers that reroute Internet traffic from infected computers to fraudulent Web sites are increasingly being used to launch attacks, according to a paper published this week by researchers with the Georgia Institute of Technology and Google Inc.

    The paper estimates roughly 68,000 servers on the Internet are returning malicious Domain Name System results, which means people with compromised computers are sometimes being directed to the wrong Web sites and often have no idea.

    Another reason why it is always better to use a software firewall like the ZA and lock in the correct DNS servers and block out any other DNS servers. This method will always stop the use of malicious DNS servers.
