I have firewall rules in place that allow Port 53 traffic from my network to go only to OpenDNS, so I cannot be using these rouge DNS servers.

Right click on the spinning box and save it to your desktop. It will allow you Internet connection for all the even number web sites you visit...the odd one's can only be accessed on leap year so make your choices wisely.

Why does that remind me of the old hell.com?

Because all the even number web site on 9 July 2012 are written in Etruscan and if the spinning box happens to fall on the Blue background just a you visit a site...the Internet Creature will come and carry you off to Davy Jone's Locker.

I bet the FBI has enjoyed this year of spying for free on these unsuspecting user's DNS traffic. Too bad it's over for them.

Unless they spent their money on the development. You know, these days they work on "cyberwar"... (meaning - writing own viruses for taxpayers money). In this case virus redirects all DNS requests to their servers and they can watch what all those users are doing on the Internet. You have to admit, it's quite convenient way to conduct the business. But, "unfortunately", it can't be kept in secret forever. Thus, some day Internet users have to get a "service termination" alert and some story about how it happened... At this point it's just a guess of course, but it's based on very recent history of our (and officially admitted) cyber warfare development... So, now it could be considered plausible until proven otherwise.

From the Washington Post:

At 12:01 a.m. EDT, the FBI turned off the Internet servers that were functioning as a temporary safety net to keep infected computers online for the past eight months.

That's the funny part. As goalieskates mentioned, some of the morning news shows are still talking as if they haven't yet, and to watch out.

Well, some will know what's going on, and some won't.
But either way, they'll know to "watch out".
