Microsoft has No-IP domains offline for malware distribution




Microsoft has over twenty areas of No-IP, a widely used ddns provider, Monday to get offline. According to the company that would be an important part of a major botnet. No-IP speaks of a draconian measure.

Microsoft makes on his blog that the No-IP accountable for the domains that the Bladabindi and Jenxcus-malware, for creating and maintaining a botnet spread. The total of 23 unknown domains would be responsible for 93 percent of all known Bladabindi and Jenxcus infections, claims the technology giant. The past twelve months, Microsoft found 7.4 million infections.

Microsoft submitted two weeks ago, a request to the court as the DNS authority to the 23 domains. In this way, the company says it can figure out where the infection came from exactly. In addition, Microsoft slightly later include Internet service providers in the findings, so that countermeasures can be taken. “The computers with malware harm Microsoft, its customers and the public as a whole.”

No-IP allows in a reaction that to be the measure of Microsoft. “very surprised” “If Microsoft had approached us, we were immediately taken action,” said the company in a statement. “These draconian actions affect millions of innocent Internet users.” No-IP puts it hard to act against abuse and to do to turn back. Decision of the judge are best
