> Avira is known to have many false positives.

A summary of this false positive is here:

It’s called a “Backdoor server” and the test is described as “A
generic detection routine”.  It probably flags anything with bind() or
CreateService() in it.

As an aside, resolving is a good torture test for Deadwood:

* There are for upstream name servers for

* Two of the upstram name servers are glueless

* One of the two glueless names points to a NXDOMAIN, not an IP

* Only one of the four upstream servers (the other glueless one)
actually replies to DNS queries.
