DNSChanger Prefixes are re-allocated and advertised ...

Hi Team,

FYI - Two prefixes from the DNS Changer/Rover Digital take down have been re-allocated. One of the prefixes - 85.255.112.0/20 - was advertised Friday morning. There is a blog post with some of the details here:

"Beware! DNS Changer’s IP Blocks are re-allocated and advertised!" - http://www.senki.org/archives/930

A general feeling of surprise summarizes several of the behind the scenes security conversation. A general recommendation of "be careful of the traffic going to and from these netblocks" is the best advice at this time.

Wow, that was fast. So the police order actually made sense and was
probably necessary.
