Secretive North Korea Not So Secretive - North Korean DNS Now Public!

On Sept 19, 2016 at approximately 10:00PM (PDT), one of North Korea's top level nameservers was accidentally configured to allow global DNS zone transfers. This allows anyone who performs an AXFR (zone transfer) request to the country's ns2.kptc.kp nameserver to get a copy of the nation's top level DNS data. North Korea has a total of 28 Secret/Only For North Korean Sites

Some of the sites are failing to load but that's most likely because of excess users viewing what on there.
