Verisign's Wildcard Service Deployment

On September 15, 2003, VeriSign changed the way the COM and NET registries responded when presented with uninstantiated names. Instead of returning the standard error code, it responded with the address of one of its servers. This change has raised concerns about the stability of the domain name system. On October 4, 2003, VeriSign temporarily suspended this change.
