I have been thinking of using http://tunlr.net/ for accessing "geo-IP banned websites" like netflix.
However, I have my concerns about safety of using some third party DNS server for everything. So, my question is. Let's suppose I use something like tunlr.net or some other third party DNS server. What "evil" they can and can't do?
Let's also add these assumptions.
- I access mails, facebooks and most importantly bank accounts only through https, but I don't check the certificates by hand, but let my browser do it for me
- I generally disallow any third party plugins in browser as much as I can (flash, java, Acrobat)
- I am smart enough not to fall for completely obvious phishing
- I install actualization, but I don't use antivirus (since I use OS X and Ubuntu)
With all this said - if I use some third party DNS server and it becomes malicious, what can they do?
[edit, 2017 - tunlr.net is no longer operating; it was a DNS server that redirected netflix to proxied US version for free. There might be similar servers now.]
