Microsoft block 4 Million Domains

Four million domains have been shutdown, despite the fact that Microsoft only wants 18,472 of them.
Statement from No-Ip services
We want to update all our loyal customers about the service
outages that many of you are experiencing today. It is not a technical
issue. This morning, Microsoft served a federal court order and seized
22 of our most commonly used domains because they claimed that some of
the subdomains have been abused by creators of malware. We were very
surprised by this. We have a long history of proactively working with
other companies when cases of alleged malicious activity have been
reported to us. Unfortunately, Microsoft never contacted us or asked us
to block any subdomains, even though we have an open line of
communication with Microsoft corporate executives.
We have been in contact with Microsoft today. They claim that
their intent is to only filter out the known bad hostnames in each
seized domain, while continuing to allow the good hostnames to resolve.
However, this is not happening. Apparently, the Microsoft infrastructure
is not able to handle the billions of queries from our customers.
Millions of innocent users are experiencing outages to their services
because of Microsoft’s attempt to remediate hostnames associated with a
few bad actors.
Had Microsoft contacted us, we could and would have taken
immediate action. Microsoft now claims that it just wants to get us to
clean up our act, but its draconian actions have affected millions of
innocent Internet users.
Vitalwerks and No­-IP have a very strict abuse policy. Our
abuse team is constantly working to keep the No-­IP system domains free
of spam and malicious activity. We use sophisticated filters and we scan
our network daily for signs of malicious activity. Even with such
precautions, our free dynamic DNS service does occasionally fall prey to
cyber scammers, spammers, and malware distributors. But this
heavy-handed action by Microsoft benefits no one. We will do our best to
resolve this problem quickly.
