Default DNS servers hijacked in the Netherlands

From https://isc.sans.edu/diary/DNS+serve...herlands/16324

Earlier this week reports started to appear that the DNS of several webhosting companies in the Netherlands had been hijacked and those using the services were being redirected to malware sites, notably blackhole.

According to the notification by the provider (http://noc.digitalus.nl/dashboard/13...ng-DNS-servers) requests were being forwarded to external name servers. The issue was picked up relatively quickly. According to Digitalus and other reports SIDN, the Foundation for Internet Domain Registration in the Netherlands suffered a breach which affected the domain name registration systems. The change was made at 0330 and the zone fully recovered by 0800, but that did mean that those who had already erroneously resolved the malicious domains would retain those records for a typical 24 hours. Whilst the provider is still investigating, at the moment there is no additional information available. It is not yet clear how the initial change was made. the result however is still being felt by a number of their customers.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
