About 10 minutes ago, I found the google.com IP is redirected to several random chinese search engine. To verify it, I tried NSLOOKUP, the results is really amazing.

Obviously google.com's DNS root has been hacked and trasferred to another NameServer which is also controlled by the hacker.

Anyone also noticed that?

hmmm. You are in China?

Well, I've been using google all morning through two different isp's and three boxes and there hasn't been any problems from the US side. Also just used it a few times from several different shell accounts.

Chinese playing games with routing?

if you have friends in China, you can ask him to input www.google.com, and he would tell you this is a web from Peking University, a search engine web.....nothing to do with true google.

I am at China, I cannot talk more...

We understand kch333. We too live and work in a community that, for the good of us all, must restrict subjects to those deemed appropriate. Such is the nature, and such are the liabilities, of artificial communities, I contend.
