Google today announced that they’re providing a high-performance public DNS server. This sounds like a great idea from a performance perspective … I’ve not had too many complaints with my DNS servers provided by Comcast but I’ve definitely had some issues at my work with slow/non-responsive DNS servers.
However, I suppose this is just one more thing that can go wrong. Now there’s one BIG target to attack and if someone happens to poison the cache, we’re all in a world of hurt.
I do plan on updating my home router though to start using this. I’ll post a follow-up with my review.
Update: They’re definitely taking security very seriously. Some more info can be found here that’s quite helpful.
