RE: Open Letter to D-Link about their NTP vandalism

It still would require him to answer the DNS requests. Only
way to addres that is everybody outside DIX declare as in their resolvers.

How about serve back bogus NTP data to non-BIX customer
prefixes? Maybe if people's computers start setting
themselves to the year 2004 D-Link will do something. :slight_smile:


Perhaps return back a time value that is ~10 seconds from wrapping around?
Where "wrapping" depends on the size of a time value in the device's OS.

(Note that if the devices crash because of bad input, I can hardly see that
as legally actionable, since the devices never had the permission to use the
data source in the first place. :wink:

yeah, d-link would probably sue DIX.


Don't count on that. If you set a bear trap inside your front door, and a
burglar injures himself because of it, you can be held liable, at least in
most US states. Dunno about .dk.
