Anyone else noticing "." requests coming in to your DNS servers?
I'm seeing them coming from the following addresses in my ns server logs.
We're also seeing a great number of these, but the idiots spoofing the
queries are hitting several non-recursive nameservers we host - and only
generating 59-byte "REFUSED" replies.
Looks like they probably just grabbed a bunch of DNS hosts out of WHOIS
and hoped that they were recursive resolvers.
