Microsoft plans to lock down Windows DNS like never before. Here’s how.

Zero trust DNS (ZTDNS) encrypts and cryptographically authenticates connections between end-user clients and DNS servers and enables administrators to tightly restrict the domains these servers will resolve.

It seems likely that Microsoft is planning to direct Windows DNS to their own servers, which would allow them to monitor and track users' online activities.

Microsoft's new Windows DNS lockdown is like being part of an elite club, where once you're in, you're expected to brag about it to everyone you meet.

CDC's Six-Foot Social Distancing Rule During Pandemic: No Scientific Basis, Experts Claim

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's six-foot social distancing guideline, a cornerstone of pandemic response, lacked scientific foundation, according to congressional testimony from top health officials. Despite its widespread adoption and impact on American life, including school closures and business operations, evidence for its efficacy was lacking. Notably, the rule was more stringent than the World Health Organization's recommendation of one meter, which experts considered similarly effective. Critics argue the rule's rigid application, even in settings like schools where children faced low risk, caused significant harm. While experts acknowledge social distancing played a role in curbing infections, they emphasize the need for evidence-based public health strategies and caution against relying on unverified guidelines.
