    Looks like Earthlink has it fixed now. I wonder if they will let people know they were hacked and should scan their computers. That would be the responsible thing to do.

    I'm still having the same problem on my earthlink nameserver

    Using domain server:
    Aliases: is an alias for has address

    It actually now takes about 7 tries to come up with the bad ip address, usually it's the right one. I've tried reporting this to earthlink via chat and several e-mail addresses, but several hours of efforts were unable to break through their defenses (they've turned off e-mail addresses like and the chat guy was clueless and finally agreed I should e-mail, but I just got an automated response from that saying my e-mail would be ignored). I'm hoping someone will put in the effort to somehow get earthlink to acknowledge and fix this problem. Also I'm not a DNS expert, could the problem be in routing tables so that sometimes the earthlink nameserver isn't even reached? I've tried running several traceroute commands to my nameserver and it looks ok to me.

    Overall, it is incredible that this basic a security flaw could exist for over a week and I can't even succeed in telling earthlink about it.
