Rizon DNS outtage was due to DDoS

A few days ago we reported about a DNS outage at We got in contact with Ksd, a service operator at Rizon, who gave us as explanation; “The error it appears was caused because the owner of the domain filled in random letters and numbers for the contact information address which was flagged.”

After the article was posted we got a number of logs and emails showing a completely different story.

[23:07:13] <static> someone reported our dns and dos’d the shit outta NS and client servers

[23:07:31] <static> gay registar just froze it without emailing or anyth

Static is a developer and admin on the Rizon network. We got back in contact with Ksd and he commented “At the time of the submition, the reason given was thought to have been the cause.” On the log itself he commented “Sounds about right”.

“It was payback from a bunch of pissed off users of other nets that Rizon has ddosed earlier. You know the story.. Everyone does, but noone can prove a thing”, one person said in a reaction to IRCJunkie.
