RE: .mn.rr.com dns possibly hacked?

  • From: Michelle T

I use my Minneapolis (actually St Paul) RR Cable modem every day, all day
long for vpn access as well as personal use. Haven't seen a single problem
with dns resolution using mn.rr.com. I suppose it is possible that mpls and
st paul use different servers. I believe their primary is my secondary.

Is he running his on caching nameserver, or  roadrunners?

I expect someone needs to upgrade their nameserver.
