This technology can be thwarted by any malware that has access to the
Layered Service Provider using the service provider interface. That and
client side malware will also target the anti-pharming tool to modify or
break the program. What happens if the target can not reach the "3
secure" dns servers? Do we successfully DoS the user?

Thoughts?
