On March 31st 2012, Anonymous plan to take down the 13 root DNS servers that power the Internet: http://pastebin.com/NKbnh8q8
... and I don't want to even notice if it actually happens.
Assuming what they are trying to do is feasable:
- Are there any DNS servers that won't be affected that I can use?
- If not, is it possible to create a non-expiring cache of all DNS records on a local machine?
- If so, how would I go about doing this?
Of course, DNS changes wouldn't be reflected and TTL would have to be ignored; but that is better than all DNS lookups just timing out.
