Re: DNS deluge for x.p.ctrc.cc

Actually, what we are seeing does not appear to be an amplification attack. It appears to be a request flood from infected machines. We have anti-spoofing filters on our upstream connections as well as our subscriber's access lines. The source addresses are not spoofed. They are valid subscriber source IP's. Based on some cached entries I have found in other nameservers, CTRC.CC was apparently hacked and was delegating a number of subdomains to another nameserver that was issuing the 4K TXT record. The delegation has now been removed, and the nameserver they were delegated to appears to be offline.
Do they all happen to be connecting to one outside IP address? :)
