    Are ISPs Profiting at the Expense of Your Security? - Responses from Earthlink and Barefruit

    (Page 4 of 4 )


    Both Earthlink and Barefruit have responded to this potential threat. For one, they believe that the advertisement pages can be valuable resources to users. Earthlinkís spokesman, Chris Marshall, responding via e-mail, also mentioned that it provides its subscribers DNS error practicality through Barefruit. Barefruit improves the customersí Internet experience.

    Marshall also said that Earthlink is closely collaborating with Barefruit to offer a safe and sound method in order to help users find the website they want to go to. Marshall believes all in all this is positive for the users.

    However, if customers donít feel comfortable with this policy, they do have options. One of the options that customers can take advantage of is use different Earthlink DNS servers.

    The second option they can take advantage of is OpenDNS, which is a start-up company. OpenDNS does offer advertisements for web pages that donít exist, but it admits itís not the other site. An article on OpenDNS ran on this web site about a year and a half ago, which you may want to check out.
