I've used OpenDNS servers for years but didn't keep my IP updated for the past year or so. I had been with an ISP whom I had a static Ip with but then switched to a new ISP and forgot to reconfigure OpenDNS. Anyway, I just downloaded the OpenDNS Updater and configured my router and clients to use OpenDNS. All is well, however I noticed in my Settings that there is a porn site listed under the "Never Block" section. I have 4 kids and my wife in our home. None are tech savy, know anything about OpenDNS nor my password which is securely stored in a password program. They would have to get my password, login to OpenDNS and add that URL... but if they know how to do that, they'd be aware that I'd see it. In addition, all but my 14 year old son is almost a zero chance of doing this. He's an excellent kid and I highly doubt he would even have a clue or the guts to do this, but anything is possible and I don't want to be the naive parent.
Has anyone ever experience something like this? I want to believe that it's something to do with a hacked OpenDNS account, but again that would seem only possible if someone knew my password.
I would really appreciate any input as I'm trying to figure out how to deal with this. I've already changed my OpenDNS password.
