I recently asked a friend if I could have just a list of the domains in the LinkedIn dump, no passwords, not full emails, just domains. I run a program that I lovingly call “DeepMagic” and I feed it domains whenever I can. Well, this time when I tossed the list of domains into the engine it started spitting out tons of errors. There was a total of 9,436,804 unique domains names in the list, and for anyone who works with DNS that isn’t a very big number, so I didn’t think very much of it and didn’t know why it would choke on a list that small.
