the afternoon of January 21st nationwide the emergence of Internet access failure, a large number of domain names including Baidu, Tencent, Sina, was hijacked, the accident lasted a few hours, became a nationwide Internet disaster.

is similar to the scale of the accident is not common, why the scope of such a wide range of reasons why can not be restored in a short time? Why the Chinese Internet easily hijacked?

after multi consultation, NetEase technology trying to use plain language to restore the event.

DNS why so fragile?

The full name of DNS

Domain Name System (domain name system), user input domain name through DNS analysis to the corresponding IP address, domain name will be the first local DNS server to resolve, if not to return analysis, the upper server until the query to the root server to query the most advanced, the local server will be the IP cache again, the user access to the domain name will return to the cached IP.

this is the root of the DNS server, referring to a total of 13 sets of the world’s root DNS server, is responsible for recording the corresponding suffix of the top-level domain name server.

in the case of DNS contamination, the domain name can be resolved to the non site corresponding to the IP, so hijacked to the 65.49.2.178.

It is understood that

DNS, the last update specification in 1987, after almost no change, that is to say, the current DNS standard is 27 years ago, although the root server is the highest level of protection, but still possible because of political differences, domain name management causes large fault, so without paralysis the end.

since read from the local DNS, why would be hijacked?

as mentioned above, when the user access to a domain name, the operator’s recursive DNS will deal with it, thereby easing the pressure on the root DNS.

recursive DNS refers to a domain name to IP address cache, and the default that this relationship will not change over a period of time, but it will have a buffer time, usually one hour, every hour will be superior to the recursive DNS DNS to request a IP, so the final effect DNS attack will spread to the recursive DNS, which affects every user.

when the user on the computer to the network connection DNS set to 8.8.8.8 (foreign DNS), visit the site will not be resolved from the recursive DNS, so you can avoid the pollution problem.

who is the culprit?

, a security industry source said, hackers want to turn off the recursive DNS server is almost impossible

first_imgThe CIA’s allegation that Russia intervened in the U.S. presidential election to help Donald Trump is “fake news” being peddled by the Washington Post and New York Times.Did the Russians sabotage voting machines in the Midwest? That’s the sort of stuff U.S. spy agencies would brag about discovering. But no.Russia is accused of hacking the computer of Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager John Podesta and giving embarrassing information to WikiLeaks. But Julian Assange, WikiLeaks’ editor-in-chief, denied Russia was the source. (Politico, Nov. 3)Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina nonetheless declared, “I’m going after Russia in every way you can go after Russia. … I think they did interfere with our elections, and I want Putin personally to pay the price.” (Washington Post, Dec. 10)It wasn’t Russia that set up the Electoral College that’s sending Trump to the White House, even though he got 2.8 million fewer votes than Clinton. As Yale law professor Akhil Reed Amar has pointed out, the Electoral College was established to protect slavery. (Vox, Nov. 12)And it was not Russia that suppressed African-American and Latinx votes.The CIA claims against Russia are old news. “‘We have not drawn any evidentiary connection to any Russian intelligence service and WikiLeaks — none,’ said one U.S. official,” That’s what the Washington Post reported back on July 27.So why the clamor now? It probably has something to do with most of Aleppo being liberated by Syria’s elected government, which is aided by Russia and Iran. It’s a big defeat for the CIA.Attacking Russia for allegedly aiding Trump is also a way to attack this super-bigot from the right.Millions of people may be coming to Washington, D.C., on Jan. 20 to protest Trump’s inauguration. Blaming Russia is an attempt to divert the struggle.It’s easier to knock Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson, Trump’s apparent secretary of state nominee, for deals with Russia than to attack the oil giant for, say, exploiting Yemen.Democrats like New York Sen. Charles Schumer are yelling the loudest against Russia, while capitulating to Trump’s nomination of a virtual junta of generals in his cabinet.During the election campaign the ruling class and its capitalist state were split. The biggest banks and the CIA supported Clinton. Most of the small banks, oil frackers like Harold Hamm — the sort of forces that backed Barry Goldwater in 1964 — were for Trump.The FBI was also for Trump, and FBI Director James Comey may have helped tilt the elections by raising Clinton’s emails late in the campaign.The split between these two Gestapo-like agencies — the CIA and the FBI — has continued, with the FBI discounting the CIA’s claims about Russia. (CNN, Dec. 11)What’s ironic about the CIA’s “fake news” is that U.S. election consultants boasted about how they helped re-elect Russian President Boris Yeltsin in 1996. (Los Angeles Times, July 9, 1996) Wall Street used Yeltsin to help overthrow the Soviet Union, a tragic defeat for poor people and workers everywhere.Russia today has a capitalist government, but it’s not a vassal state like Saudi Arabia. To U.S. generals like “Mad Dog” James Mattis — Trump’s choice for defense secretary — Russia is 6 million square miles to attack and occupy.Our enemies are in the corporate boardrooms and the Pentagon, not in Moscow.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img
