Norton DNS blocks Malware and Phishing Sites

Symantec offers with Norton DNS a free DNS Service. Malware and Phishing Sites are to be blocked with this Service. This Service is running at present as Beta-Version. Change the DNS IP-Address from your provider to the Norton DNS (198.153.192.1 and 198.153.194.1). With the Online-Test http://setup.nortondns.com/  you can check if your settings are correct.

Norton DNS blocks harmful Domains which are listed with the Anti-Malware Lab. Symantec feeds a special DNS Name Server with the per Norton SafeWeb collected URL’s. If the User opens a harmful site, the Nameserver redirects to the page with a Warning.

The Beta-Testing Phase of the Norton DNS Service is free and Symantec does not plan to charge even after this Phase.
