Anyone else getting DNS poisioning attacks on Mullvad
What are the symptoms?
Well there are Timeouts, ERROR NAME NOT RESOLVED to name two + some more stuff I won't mention. Smells a bit funny considering the website
I'm trying to browse.
Occasionally, browsing Wilders, Firefox throws "this connection isn't trusted" errors. I've just closed Firefox, and started again. The next time it happens, I'll check Firefox and VPN logs.
Yeah I'm going to look at the logs now.
Just change your DNS to German/Swiss privacy foundation until the problem resolves. I use the G/S privacy foundation DNS servers with my VPN by default and it works fine.
Yup, or Chaos Computer Club, etc... I do the same. Mullvad also has a public facing DNS, search their site, I forget the address.
Could you please post them? Or provide a link to where these can be found? Haven't heard of this.
I'm not having any problems here, using Mullvad's DNS address when using OpenVPN, and Comodo Secure DNS otherwise.

I'm pretty sure this has already been discussed here at Wilders but this tool is pretty useful for finding your fastest DNS server to you
You can manually add your own DNS addresses to the bench marking tool, this way you can accurately rate them for speed, I have found my VPN's own DNS servers to be quickest although I had them in the wrong order - slowest first.
I use it in conjunction with this
takes the time and hassle out of changing your DNS, also there is a button to flush the DNS
German privacy foundation is great, fast and have had no problems, user above posted the DNS.
On GRC.com/dns/ your servers should show up as
I highly recommend.
DNS Jumper looks cool. If you open the .ini file, you can input your own. I'd love to see a "privacy" .ini posted. Thanks!
