Re: How should ISPs notify customers about Bots (Was Re: DNS Hijacking by Cox)
Hiya, Plenty of boxes can do redirection in the middle such as Redback, Ellacoya etc. We redirect customers who are infected to a web page when the first connect. Then every few hours they get re-directed again, just enough so it's a bit annoying. If they ignore this for a few weeks, they get redirected more frequently :) -- Leigh Sean Donelan wrote: > > On Sun, 22 Jul 2007, Joe Greco wrote: >> We can break a lot of things in the name of "saving the Internet."
