Re: Norton ConnectSafe DNS resolving incorrectly

Hi Jeff,

Norton ConnectSafe DNS always connects you to a safer IP address whenever a malicious site is accessed.  In this case, the domain "amber.fastsecureservers.com" was being flagged as unsafe/malicious and hence it had got redirected to the above mentioned safer IP address. However, we have manually reanalyzed the domain and found it to be clean. So, we have modified its rating to green in safeweb.norton.com.


Now, Norton ConnectSafe DNS should be taking you to the correct IP.
