[dns-operations] honeypot : so many bees from Amazon

Thanks for sharing this. It makes sense: the ability to spin up unlimited
low/no cost computing power at the largest elastic computing provider in
the world is bound to attract folks who have malicious intent. Centralizing
computing power to a small number of big providers is a risky proposition.

The question I have is: what can be done about it?
