With the issue going on with KB951748, I did a DNS safety check at a website and mine didn't seem to pass. I have Earthlink dial-up, so I use the following DNS servers:
...and I have those set in ZA Free (currently 6.5.737, until I revert to an older version so I can install KB951748 and still have internet access) as "Trusted" in the Firewall Zones.
Would I be better off using the OpenDNS ones instead? I don't really understand about all that, but I thought I read those are "safer" and are not susceptible to the DNS spoofing that the MS patch deals with. Is this true?
If so, how do I bypass or remove the Earthlink ones all together from being used on my laptop and use the OpenDNS ones instead?
Is it *necessary* to sign up for an account with OpenDNS, or are you just as safe/secure by just using their DNS servers as is?
