Default No-IPís Formal Statement on Microsoft Takedown

No-IPís Formal Statement on Microsoft Takedown

June 30, 2014∑
by Natalie Goguen∑


We want to update all our loyal customers about the service outages that many of you are experiencing today. It is not a technical issue. This morning, Microsoft served a federal court order and seized 22 of our most commonly used domains because they claimed that some of the subdomains have been abused by creators of malware. We were very surprised by this. We have a long history of proactively working with other companies when cases of alleged malicious activity have been reported to us. Unfortunately, Microsoft never contacted us or asked us to block any subdomains, even though we have an open line of communication with Microsoft corporate executives.

We have been in contact with Microsoft today. They claim that their intent is to only filter out the known bad hostnames in each seized domain, while continuing to allow the good hostnames to resolve. However, this is not happening. Apparently, the Microsoft infrastructure is not able to handle the billions of queries from our customers. Millions of innocent users are experiencing outages to their services because of Microsoftís attempt to remediate hostnames associated with a few bad actors.

Had Microsoft contacted us, we could and would have taken immediate action. Microsoft now claims that it just wants to get us to clean up our act, but its draconian actions have affected millions of innocent Internet users.

Vitalwerks and No*-IP have a very strict abuse policy. Our abuse team is constantly working to keep the No-*IP system domains free of spam and malicious activity. We use sophisticated filters and we scan our network daily for signs of malicious activity. Even with such precautions, our free dynamic DNS service does occasionally fall prey to cyber scammers, spammers, and malware distributors. But this heavy-handed action by Microsoft benefits no one. We will do our best to resolve this problem quickly.

Our robust Anycast Network with points of presence in 18 different world*class facilities across the globe guarantees our 100% Uptime, because letís face it, there are no upsides to downtime.

You cant help but wonder if Ruppie Murdock is infact somewhere behind this shutdown by Microsoft and giving them a back-hander to shut down even more c/s servers, i'll be very amazed if he is'nt .
But no matter what way you look at it this smells of corporate corruption !

Plaintiff Microsoft has sued defendants Naser Al Mutairi; Mohamed Benabdellah; Vitalwerks Internet Solutions, LLC, d/b/a No-IP.com; and Does 1-500, associated with No-IP domains and sub-domains. Microsoft alleges that Defendants have violated Federal and state law by distributing malicious software through more than 18,000 sub-domains belonging to No-IP (“Malicious Domains”), causing the unlawful intrusion into, infection of, and further illegal conduct involving, the personal computers of innocent persons, thereby causing harm to those persons, Microsoft, and the public at large. Microsoft seeks a preliminary injunction directing that it be made the authoritative name server for the Malicious Domains in order to block traffic to the sub-domains being used to support malware and other malicious operations. Microsoft seeks a permanent injunction and damages. Full copies of the pleading documents are available at http://www.noticeoflawsuit.com.

NOTICE TO DEFENDANT: READ THESE PAPERS CAREFULLY! You must “appear” in this case or the other side will win automatically. To “appear,” you must file with the court a legal document called a “motion” or “answer.” The “motion” or “answer” must be given to the court clerk or administrator within 21 days of the date of first publication specified herein. It must be in proper form and have proof of service on the plaintiff’s attorney, Randall D. Haimovici, Shook, Hardy & Bacon L.L.P., One Montgomery Street, Suite 2700, San Francisco, California 94107. If you have questions, you should see an attorney immediately. If you need help finding an attorney, you may call the Nevada State Bar at 702.382.0504 (in Nevada) or 800.789.5747 (State or Nationwide).
