So my no-ip hostname stopped working this morning, couldn't work out what was going on.
I logged onto no-ip and find this.
Microsoft have SEIZED 22 of NO-IP's domains on some crusade to stop malware, and have taken out maybe millions of legitimate users domains in the process!
How can Microsoft even get a court order to do this?
They clearly have misrepresented the impact they are going top have on legitimate users!
I hope Microsoft is sued for billions of dollars for this deliberate HACK ATTACK on millions of legitimate users domain names!
We want to update all our loyal customers about the service outages that many of you are experiencing today. It is not a technical issue. This morning, Microsoft served a federal court order and seized 22 of our most commonly used domains because they claimed that some of the subdomains have been abused by creators of malware. We were very surprised by this. We have a long history of proactively working with other companies when cases of alleged malicious activity have been reported to us. Unfortunately, Microsoft never contacted us or asked us to block any subdomains, even though we have an open line of communication with Microsoft corporate executives.
We have been in contact with Microsoft today. They claim that their intent is to only filter out the known bad hostnames in each seized domain, while continuing to allow the good hostnames to resolve. However, this is not happening. Apparently, the Microsoft infrastructure is not able to handle the billions of queries from our customers. Millions of innocent users are experiencing outages to their services because of Microsoft’s attempt to remediate hostnames associated with a few bad actors.
