Another UK ISP joins the effort to offer secure DNS resolution endpoints. Thank you, @firstname.lastname@example.org!
We've started a trial of DNS over HTTPS (DoH) and DNS over TLS (DoT) services. Customers are welcome to use these services (eg in Firefox/Android). More information: https://aa.net.uk/dns/
Good, balanced article on #DNSoverHTTPS by @EFF@twitter.com with @email@example.com from UK's Faelix ISP https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2019/09/encrypted-dns-could-help-close-biggest-privacy-gap-internet-why-are-some-groups
Remember when hackers injected malicious code into @British_Airways@twitter.com payment pages? @ICOnews@twitter.com fine: £183M. https://faelix.link/bagdpr
Wondering what @firstname.lastname@example.org thinks of this one... https://www.engadget.com/2019/07/18/pampers-lumi-smart-diapers/
Hoping this article will biodegrade when it gets in the sea 🌊
Debian 10 "Buster" has been released! We've got our new VPS templates built, and they'll be live soon! https://faelix.link/debian10
Given the number of people who’ve enabled DNS-over-HTTPS in the last 48 hours, it’s clear @ISPAUK@twitter.com doesn’t understand or appreciate @email@example.com’s so-called “Streisand Effect.”
According to https://www.cbeci.org/ it looks like each Bitcoin transaction wastes the same energy as a lightning strike.
What design of disgraceful delinquency have the depraved DoH desperados at @firstname.lastname@example.org thought of now? Let's see…
Oh. Hmm. Well, after @ICOnews@twitter.com called out the online ad brokering world as borderline illegal, is this a good idea whose time has finally come?
Another DoH provider joins in the “light-hearted […] debate”.
Thanks to @ISPAUK@twitter.com's awful attack on @email@example.com we'll be prioritizing the deployment of our freely available #DoH servers.
(And if you can't wait there's always @firstname.lastname@example.org's https://faelix.net/ref/dns/#privacy-dns if you want to try DoH without using @CloudFlare@twitter.com et al)
Oh no, another bandit! 😎😂
Seriously @ISPAUK@twitter.com and @IWFhotline@twitter.com, look how easy this was, DoH / DoT server at https://adblock.doh.mydns.network providing ad-blocking and malware black-holing (using pi-hole as a backend, no queries are logged). Your complaints are baseless.
