If you change the DNS and a user can not get to windowsupdate, you just helped him create a better
DoS than he had...

I have no affiliation with Microsoft, nor do I care about their services or products. What I do care about is a worm that sends out packets uncontrolled. If there is the possibility that this "planned" DOS will cause issues with my topology, then I will do whatever it takes to stop it. The fact that user's can't reach windowsupdate.com is irrelevant.
