   We wrote a few iterations of FF DNS detectors in Bro several years
back. Our paper is here:


   We tried a few different approaches, but the one that worked the
best in the end was based on white/black listing ASNs. Scott may
remember it better than I, as he is further along in his recovery from
newborn baby induced memory loss. Jason Lee has probably the freshest
recollection of approach since he worked on the most recent edit of
the paper.
