NHIJACK Violation

Hijacking to display 'blocked by court order/content filtering' messages

Status: Current — The violation is standing.

Sky-provided DNS resolvers give fraudulent responses for blocked websites. This is the mode of implementation of such censorship. The fraudulent response directs clients to a web page explaining the reason why the given website is blocked.

This DNS forgery does not appear to apply to requests made to non-Sky DNS resolvers.
