Herd of Electric Sheep DoS German ISP Giant

Please, T-Offline, if you cannot administer DNS servers, maybe you should stop destroying the German ISP market?

lapse:~> host -t aaaa ethereal.net.nyud.net. 217.237.151.97
ethereal.net.nyud.net AAAA record not found
  at www-proxy.M1.srv.t-online.de,
  server failure

Server failure? Fuck off!

What's even worse is that one single request causes their servers to send back about 1'500 ServFail messages.

And all this just because electricsheep uses curl, which tries IPv6 before it falls back to IPv4. How naïve.
