Where are you getting that info from? Is the group tweeting responsibility for it?

Re: Charter Being DDOS'D

We shouldn't listen to you. Google is better than anybody and we use it exclusively in my web dev company, my two restaurants, and all my friends and family.

For whatever reason you choose to downgrade yourself to some other service, those other services do the same thing I presume you fear.

Yea, Google would never use the data they collected on you...

It's trivial to setup and run your own DNS servers.

I do not, have not, and will not work for AT&T/Comcast/Verizon/Charter or similar sized company.

From Google:
quote:
Google Public DNS does not permanently store personally identifiable information.
IP information is deleted after 48 hours. They collect aggregate data, but nothing in it is personally identifiable.

Compare that to OpenDNS's privacy policy which allows them to store this data forever.

They don't do anything different than any other service but, as I showed in my link, they've got your back.

For crying out loud, if you don't like Google, just use L3's DNS service. Sheesh.

The news today says it was Sony's PlayStation Network that was hit by lizard squad or something like that.

I was wondering why I hadn't had any problems with Charter's DNS/network, and I guess it's because I wasn't trying to access any gaming networks.

It was all DNS. you might have missed the larger occurrence. only Small areas are still effective.

Hard to figure out. I was online all day yesterday, with no problems, yet someone else in Lawrenceville, reported that they were having problems.

That's the most moronic thing I've ever heard.

I've used google's dns servers since they started offering them. Always speed, never have any problems with them, and unlike most ISP's who can't seem to get DNS right or have multiple issues with it, Google's DNS servers have just worked.

So just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean you you should be telling people not to use a product that will solve their issue.

If you want to use 3rd party dns you can always try using this app to find the ones that respond fastest for you. »www.grc.com/dns/benchmark.htm

How do you know the DNS servers are being DDOS'd? Is this part of the gaming network attacks or something else?

On that list you linked: My ISP is better than Google; and their DNS servers work very well.

Yeah, I'm not the moron willing to give a for profit advertising company that almost assuredly has received an NSL for ALL of their customer data. Every bit of information there is to know about your life in a one stop shop of Email, search results, shopping, documents, site's you've visited directly via their DNS, passwords to all the site's you've visited should you have used a Google hosted email address which includes more then just Gmail, your current location and where you've been via an Android device with GPS or a cell network, and so on and so forth.
