Cameroon is at it again, wildcarding all of the .cm namespace so they can put advertisements up when you typo .com domains like http://www.google.cm. Since August 9, OpenDNS users have had the option to undo this change and decide how they want it handled. There is an option on our preferences page where you can decide how you want this dealt with for your computer or network.

As a reminder, if you do turn on .cm to .com wildcard filtering, all real .cm domains will still work!. That includes domains like airfrance.cm and others that we listed.

We don’t know why Cameroon (or its operator) is flip-flopping on this one, but I’d encourage you to turn this preference on and leave it on.
