I was making some tests in a relative's laptop, running Windows 7 Ultimate SP1. When ClearCloud DNS, by Sunbelt, ceased to exist, I configured my relative's connection device to use Norton DNS IP addresses. I did some tests, to make sure it was blocking, and it was. Sometime ago, Symantec made changes to Norton DNS, and to block phishing websites, one had to use other set of IP addresses, namely Preferred DNS: 22.214.171.124 and Alternate DNS: 126.96.36.199. -https://dns.norton.com/dnsweb/huConfigurePc.do Norton DNS gets its data from Norton SafeWeb -https://dns.norton.com/dnsweb/faq.do Norton ConnectSafe leverages the Norton Safe Web database. Safe Web contains information on millions of sites and it is queried billions of times each day. Norton ConnectSafe is updated every few minutes with the latest site rating information. They now call Norton DNS, Norton ConnectSafe, by the way. Anyway, apparently, Norton DNS/ConnectSafe will be updated every few minutes. To my surprise, I thought I had change my relative's configuration to use the IPs I mentioned above, but it was still running the old IP addresses. I had forgotten to modify them. So, I altered the IPs, and then rebootd the laptop. I tested Norton DNS with the following domain, which is flagged as being a phishing domain by SafeWeb -https://safeweb.norton.com/report/show?url=omgclothes.com.au Norton DNS did not block access to it. Considering that the FAQ page mentions "every few minutes", I waited like 10 minutes. It still wasn't blocking it. 10 minutes is a long time, isn't it? It's more than enough for someone to fall for such fraudulent schemes. Unfortunately, when I tried to access -https://safeweb.norton.com/buzz where one can see more malicious/fradulent websites, I kept getting redirect to the main page, in Google Chrome. If using Internet Explorer 9 I'd remain in that page, but I'd only see the contents of the main page. So, I couldn't test more. If I had to manually verify individual domains, by getting them from third-parties, it would probably take me more time. Time I couldn't waste. Now, that I'm on my laptop, using Chromium, I can access it (-https://safeweb.norton.com/buzz)... Odd. Anyway, is anyone running Norton DNS, using the above IP addresses? Can you access -https://safeweb.norton.com/report/show?url=omgclothes.com.au. Please, make sure you're not testing it in a production system/unprotected system. I'm wondering if there are any problems with Norton DNS? I'm running OpenDNS myself.
