EarthLink Establishes Their Own "Site Finder"

toppk Found a work around for linux (241 comments)

I will no longer consider earthlink non-evil, and will move off as soon as convinient.

If you have fedora linux, you can run this:

echo SEARCH=earthlink.sux > /etc/dhclient-up-hooks && chmod a+x /etc/dhclient-up-hooks

This will update resolv.conf with a overridden "seach" and apparently this will get a the dns servers to return NXdomain. Apparently they only fake results when it goes to things like *.com *.earthlink.net and *.dyndns.net. I personnaly think that dyndns.org should sue someone.
