They are intercepting DNS requests and returning their
own replies. It could be something malicious, but it could
just as well be the ISP saving bandwidth by caching DNS queries.

I have never heard of an ISP which does not cache (Bind does by
default) DNS queries. If they did not, their DNS servers would be
constantly hitting the root servers, which would be horribly
inconsiderate.

If they cache DNS queries they probably cache www queries as
well. 

See my last comment.
