Thus spake "Gil Cohen" <email@example.com>In an effort to protect the Internet from future hacking attacks, VeriSign (Nasdaq: VRSN - news) has moved one of the Net's root servers to an undisclosed physical and virtual location.Maybe I'm missing something... J's "virtual location" aka IP address is now available from every DNS server in the world, not to mention the public announcement that VeriSign made to various lists. How is this undisclosed?
And how does it help anybody if a root server's address is made secret? Wouldn't an off-line backup be just as useful and cheaper to implement? -- David
