DNS filtering is a method of blocking unwanted or unknown activity on your network By using AlohaDNS you can filter out web content that you do not wish to see when you browse the internet. You will be surprised on how many domains you really use. Even if you use 500 domains, that’s only 0.0002% of the internet. AlohaDNS can help employers, businesses, and parents stop porn, malware and user specified domains for example Facebook.
Our AlohaDNS service blocks porn and user controlled specific domains :
You can use unfiltered DNS Servers:
18.104.22.168 & 22.214.171.124
126.96.36.199 & 188.8.131.52
184.108.40.206 & 220.127.116.11

Short for Network Time Protocol, an Internet standard protocol(built on top of TCP/IP) that assures accurate synchronization to the millisecond of computer clock times in a network of computers. Based on UTC, NTP synchronizes client workstation clocks to the U.S. Naval Observatory Master Clocks in Washington, DC and Colorado Springs CO. Running as a continuous background client program on a computer, NTP sends periodic time requests toservers, obtaining server time stamps and using them to adjust the client’s clock.
The latest version of NTP is defined in RFC 1305.
For example if you are currently using : time.apple.com or pool.ntp.org it should be changed to ntp.lava.net .
Till next time Mahalo from everyone here at LavaNet support………..
Researchers say they have uncovered an ongoing attack that infects home and small-office wireless routers from Linksys with self-replicating malware, most likely by exploiting a code-execution vulnerability in the device firmware.
Johannes B. Ullrich, CTO of the Sans Institute, told Ars he has been able to confirm that the malicious worm has infected around 1,000 Linksys E1000, E1200, and E2400 routers, although the actual number of hijacked devices worldwide could be much higher. A blog post Sans published shortly after this article was posted expanded the range of vulnerable models to virtually the entire Linksys E product line. Once a device is compromised, it scans the Internet for other vulnerable devices to infect.” To see the whole report click here .
There are steps that you can take to fix this issue. Click here to be taken to an article written in PC Magazine that will explain how to combat this exploit.

US-CERT has issued an advisory that warns enterprises about distributed denial of service attacks flooding networks:
In response Trinet Solutions, AlohaTone, and LavaNet customers we will be creating ntp.lava.net , ntp.trinet-hi.com, ntp.alohatone.com.
Which will round robin (3) trusted NTP Servers :
WHY – because a new vulnerability based on time syncing :
