DNS.BE Announce Release of Blocked Domains

DNS BE logoSince April 2009, DNS BE has blocked almost 200,000 .BE-domain names upon the advice of ICANN. When using the whois, the status ‘blocked’ was shown for these names.

Every three months DNS.BE received an up-to-date list from ICANN containing domain names sighted by the Conficker worm. This list contains mainly new domain names which are not yet registered, nor blocked; a small percentage contains domain names that were already sighted before.

Therefore, DNS BE have decided to unblock all non-registered domain names that figured on earlier Conficker lists but that do not pose a threat anymore. Those domain names will be unblocked this week.

In order to avoid speculation, DNS.BE will never publish a list of these domain names.
