Just now, Chinese root DNS server was down/attacked/polluted, many .com were resolved to 22.214.171.124 which belongs to Hurricane Electricity. This results internet "interruption" for millions, and I was one among them, which I shouldn't.
I was using Umbrella Roaming Client, I believe it works like a more intelligent and configurable DNSCrypt-proxy, but it turns out I my internet was "down" as well.
Umbrella claims to protect/encrypt DNS request, it has to be working with a server that supports those algorithm, far as I know, OpenDNS is using a customized algo for DNS encryption and not supported by other providers, so the dns request has to be sent to OpenDNS, which is outside of China and I could assume that you weren't compromised in anyway. So why I am I getting faulty answers from Umbrella/OpenDNS as it was Protected/Encrypted?
I've ran the diagnose program as the connection problem showed up, but it seems like this QA site is public accessible, in this case, would you provide a gpg pubkey, so i can upload an encrypted .log?
