Has anyone seen this movie? I was not a huge fan of it on any level, but I was wondering about the "tech" involved in it.
I do not know a great deal about DNS on a large scale, but couldn't the killwithme.com entry be blocked by all ISPs or the top-level DNS servers? I know in the movie that he was changing his IP address and using proxies, but that only matters after the DNS=>IP mapping, correct?
The short answer.. Yes, you could pull the DNS plug on a domain if you go far enough up the line.
I'm with DaLight on this one. I've seen a number of clips, and have a big chunk of the script that relates to the "tech", and its a bad idea to discuss real life facts in that context. BECAUSE there are completely incorrect statements treated as fact and other "facts" are built upon them.. AND the very situation contradicts itself. Its MADDENING!!
Keep the facts separate.. someone else might read this.
How about I change my question then? To settle you fact/fiction movie freaks down...
If the Gov't/ISPs wanted to stop access to somedomain.com, could this be done? Even if the person in charge of the web server changes the IP address, if you take the DNS entry out, it will still fail, correct?
