No-IP.com Seizure Outages, June 30

While probably not as significant an outage when measured on a scale of economic productivity, this one was more infuriating because it was caused by an intentional act.

Microsoft, citing cybercrime perpetrated against its users, seized 23 domains from No-IP.com, a Reno, Nev.-based provider of free dynamic DNS services. In doing so, the software giant also took out service for 1.8 million legitimate No-IP.com customers for more than two days.

Among them was SonicWall, a network security vendor acquired by Dell in 2012, which said hundreds of its customers, including buildings that run security surveillance cameras using No-IP.com's dynamic DNS service to relay video feeds, were offline.

A federal court transferred DNS authority over the domains to Microsoft, which argued they were launching pads for malware attacks.
