A DNS leak last week exposed a list of record types the public can use to protect their identity online.
These types include names, IP addresses, host names, port numbers, and domain names.
The leak, first reported by the news site Ars Technica, showed the public had been given the ability to delete records they no longer needed.
While DNS records are generally used by the public to access the Internet, some companies have decided to make the records available to companies without their permission, potentially causing headaches for privacy advocates.
FreeDNS, a company that specializes in providing public DNS records, released a list in the hopes of keeping records out of the hands of malicious parties.
The company told Ars that it will only allow public records to be removed through a process called “clean DNS.”
A “clean” DNS, in the company’s words, means that the company can’t see the IP addresses that have been deleted.
In other words, it will be possible to remove a record that was once in the public domain, but has since been deleted or moved to a private record.
The DNS records included are from the U.S. government, as well as various U.K. and German public entities.
For example, the records from the German government were removed by the British government on Monday.
In a blog post, FreeDNS said that while they do not yet have a plan to delete all records, the company will be “working with the U and German governments to create a list and/or public DNS for their public domain domains.”
That’s because “our current DNS system is not capable of providing any sort of service that will allow users to remove records of their domain name from the public DNS, nor is it capable of removing records of domain name registrars that are no longer hosted on our system,” the company said.
FreeDns said that it’s working on a way to provide the public with “a comprehensive list of all DNS records” it can remove.
The U.N. also released a similar list in its own post.
Free DNS did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The list also does not appear to have been made public, but Ars Technicica pointed out that Google and Microsoft also offered similar lists for free.
While FreeDNT claims to be a free service, it also provides a number of services to companies and individuals, including the ability for them to share the DNS records it creates with third parties.
For instance, Microsoft allows users to delete data on the company servers and share the information with third-party services.
FreeDNT also offers a service called DomainDNS that allows users and companies to register domains for free, as long as they also provide a public domain record for the domain.
DomainDns does not provide a list that is meant to protect users or their privacy, however.
FreeDomainDNS also does a similar thing, but does not offer a list.
FreeDns is not the first DNS provider to offer a service like this.
DNS provider Dyn, for instance, offers an API that allows the public and private domains to register and delete domains.
Dyn also said that FreeDomain is a service it provides for free to its users.
FreeDNAS is not as widely available, but FreeDomainDNAS also allows users, companies, and the public a list to remove their domain records from FreeDNF.
In a statement to Ars Technia, FreeDNAs founder and CEO Adam Green said the DNS data was not released to the public.
Instead, the DNS provider provided a list containing the DNS record information.
“FreeDnD is not an API,” Green said in a statement.
“Dyn, FreeDomain, and FreeDNases are private and do not disclose the data that is in this public list.
FreeDCNS is a DNS provider that offers a public DNS service.
The information in this list is only available to the end users, not to the media or to the general public.”
