Malaysia ISP TMNet Blocked malaysia-today.net Through DNS NULL Route

Silly thing to know that MCMC instructed Malaysia’s monopoly ISP, TMNet to block off malaysia-today.net website through DNS null routing. Below is the result we found through TMNET’s DNS Servers;

For your information It’s not exactly blocking, but DNS null route blocking.

How Does DNS Null Route Works?

In DNS world, human being can’t remember IP Addresses all the time, that’s why DNS existed to translate a domain name to an IP address.

For example when you access to malaysia-today.net it will translate to 72.47.236.85, 202.71.97.141 or 202.75.62.114. Those who are using TM Net DNS, it will translate malaysia-today.net to 127.0.0.1 (localhost your machine local IP Address).

Further that, malaysia-today.net still able to access through IP Addresses list below;

72.47.236.85
202.71.97.141
202.75.62.114

No Censorship on Internet? My Foot!

No censorship on internet? F*** ME.. It’s now happened in Malaysia. Besides, I strongly suggest user switch over to opendns for better surfing. Visit the website for more info. It seem like Tun Mahathir’s effort of bringing up Cyberjaya (MSC) is drown by the government. No Censorship? Ahem…

Last but… not least… Soon or later I think MCMC will block chedet.com too 🙂 So watch out Tun, your MSC has soon become MSCC (Multimedia Super Censorship Corridor!)
