SCO.COM - No DNS

It seems that SCO.COM does not have any DNS entries for the moment.

host -t ns sco.com.

sco.com NS ns.calderasystems.com
sco.com NS ns2.calderasystems.com
sco.com NS nsca.sco.com
sco.com NS c7ns1.center7.com

host -t soa sco.com.

sco.com SOA ns.calderasystems.com hostmaster.caldera.com(
2004020105 ;serial (version)
3600 ;refresh period
900 ;retry refresh this often
604800 ;expiration period
1800 ;minimum TTL
)

host -t mx sco.com.

sco.com mail is handled (pri=10) by mail.ut.caldera.com

host -v -t any www.sco.com.

Host not found.
rcode = 3 (Non-existent domain), ancount=0

SCO.COM works as normal, since the worm isn't attacking sco.com (only www.sco.com). So if you really want to visit the SCO site - http://sco.com for now.

Of course, removing the DNS will stop a lot of bandwidth usage and keep the server(s) from falling over. The attack on MS will start soon with the world moving over to the 3rd of February.

I wonder how MS will deal with it, if the attack is as big?
