Hi all,

Here at SIDN, we see an increasing load of MX incidents in the last
month. So far we've had 3 "attacks" in January alone, the last one was

I've done some interesting analysis of the source of these queries, and
see a shifting travel pattern of the botnets involved.

My question is if the other 6 major TLD's also see these attacks, f.e.
the one from yesterday, and perhaps want to discuss it in Atlanta.

If there is some consensus I might be able to draft some presentation on
this, though I'm not sure to which audience I should present it.
