Update - At peak business hours, DNS reporting has operated at a 2-3 hour delay.

We will continue to monitor this delay as we investigate short and long term solutions on how we can improve DNS data processing.
Jul 29, 10:50 EDT
Monitoring - Reporting is currently operating at a one hour delay, as designed.

We expect this delay to increase during the work week, and are working on improvements to the reporting system to reduce these delays.
Jul 27, 12:18 EDT
Investigating - We are currently investigating increased delays in DNSWatch DNS reporting data. Currently, the DNS reporting graphs in the DNSWatch Dashboard may not show up-to-date information.

We will continue to update this issue.
Jul 22, 11:13 EDT
Update - We identified another false positive on the OpenPhish feed yesterday.

A domain used in a content delivery network was erroneously added. The domain in question, responsys.net, is used by Oracle's Responsys marketing product and is safe.

We whitelisted this domain and it is no longer generating alerts.
Apr 29, 10:23 EDT
Monitoring - We have disabled the ISC feed and continue to audit the OpenPhish Premium feed.

We will continue to update this incident as we learn more.
Mar 4, 21:27 EST
Identified - Multiple benign domains have been erroneously blocked by DNSWatch recently, leading to an increase in false positive alerts.

The domains in question were added to either the Internet Storm Center or OpenPhish feeds. We are mitigating this issue by temporarily disabling the Internet Storm Center feed as well as further investigating OpenPhish.

We will continue to update this incident.
