Default China censorship leaks outside Great Firewall via DNS root server

From http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/n...oot-server.ars

On Wednesday, someone from the Chilean domain registry .cl noticed that one of the DNS root servers was responding in a very strange way to queries for domain names like facebook.com, youtube.com, and twitter.com. Normally, root servers only provide a pointer to the correct set of Top Level Domain servers—in this case, the .com servers operated by Verisign. But here, the "I" root server responded with (apparently fake) addresses.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
