My point was that it does not install bind by default. Elsewhere in
thread I remember reading that ubuntu does it by default.

I tend to disagree here. You are assuming that OpenDNS / Google DNS is
always reliable, correct and secure(???). If you dont trust your ISP
to provide the basic service that he is expected to provide reliably,
there is something wrong.

For the fact, I have been an Airtel Broadband user for over 5 years

$| tells perl to flush STDOUT immediately.

The program prints characters read from /etc/password at random
intervals. This simulates the typing effect on a screen.

As I said in my earlier mail, block all outgoing traffic from all the
hosts other than your gateway servers. so even if they try to use the
open proxy server, it would fail. And if they are using an anonymous
proxy, identify and start blocking them in your squid setup.

<offtopic>
Finally, these kind of issues are better solved by putting in a proper
IT policy and enforcing them. There will always be people finding
intelligent ways to work around this. Figure out what you are
achieving by blocking and see if there is a need for you to do it. If
you think it is absolutely needed, put in a policy to ensure that you
should not be putting such a process and implement them.

Compaq (part of HP) has been doing this since 2005/6.  They provide an
utility to make "recovery" media.  So does Sony VAIO.  (Use premium
media or you may be hosed).

This is the first activity (in my practice  <at>  client) with systems that
come with Windows pre-installed.
