This is crazy. Over the past 15 hours we have received 1,761,600 requests for the domains 30259.info & 463e9.xfds.com. All requests appear to originate from China, but the IP addresses are likely spoofed. This has all the earmarks of a DNS Amplification attack, but our server does not support Recursion and the source addresses eventually get blocked. I don't understand what the point of all this is.
Is anyone else receiving this kind of abuse?

Don't think you will be alone with kind of abuse.
