How did Microsoft cause millions of No-IP.com domains to go down?
LolaBelle 3 weeks ago
I know that Microsoft is a big company with lots of capabilities, but how did they take down all of No-IP.com’s domains? From what I’ve read, that wasn’t Microsoft’s intention, and they were trying to combat Windows targeting malware, which is an admirable goal. I wasn’t directly impacted by this, but a vendor I deal with almost daily was, so it still had an effect. How is it even possible for Microsoft to take down all of those domains?
