Legal FreeBSD developer Poul-Henning Kamp (PHK) happens to run a tier-1 NTP server, intended only for use by ISPs' main servers in Denmark, and specifically not intended for individual client connections, not to mention client connections from anywhere else in the world. He offers this service pro bono to ISPs. Unfortunately, D-Link has decided to abuse the open nature of the NTP protocol and has actually hard-coded PHK's server hostname in the firmware of several of their home network products. Since contacting D-Link yielded no results, PHK went public.

Solution: don't every buy D-Link again

Not only are they crap (the only good experience I've seen with D-Link is the DSL router my brother bought, and it died in less than a year), but they abuse the community.

Good riddance D-Link, I'll dance on your grave when you go under (just like I did with Diamond Graphics).
