Eircom DNS Server Problems

Customers of Eircom, Ireland's largest Internet Service Provider (ISP) have been experiencing serious Domain Name Server (DNS) slowdowns and weirdness over the past few weeks. Users from different parts of the country reported that trying to open legit websites - such as rte.ie and facebook.com - were often redirected to advertising pages. This has fulled speculation that Eircom's DNS have been compromised.

As the issue seems to remain ongoing at the time of writing this article, we recommend Eircom users temporarily switch to OpenDNS - a free DNS service used by millions of home users as well as organizations worldwide. This free service has many useful features and will allow Eircom users to continue browsing as normal without the risk of being infected with malware or being redirected to another destination. For instructions on using OpenDNS, follow their online tutorial here.
