Woah... Google got hit

>whois google.com

Whois Server Version 1.3

Domain names in the .com and .net domains can now be registered
with many different competing registrars. Go to http://www.internic.net
for detailed information.


To single out one record, look it up with "xxx", where xxx is one of the
of the records displayed above. If the records are the same, look them up
with "=xxx" to receive a full display for each record.

  1. For all you google addicts: still works ;-)

  2. The whois output is unrelated to the perceived outage. Basically this is a (quite old) way to spam whois by registering nameservers that begin with a commonly used domain name. (Try whois microsoft.com for more funny stuff.) No hacking there.

    To get accurate whois information type: whois “dom google.com”

  3. Ah.. I see. This is a disambiguation page. Silly me. More about this kind of thing in the comments of: hbarbobot

    Nevertheless, google outage isn’t nice, even if it was just an DNS problem.

  4. Or was it hacked? gigaom has some screenshots and background information.

  5. Now on Slashdot
