Network Solutions DNS Servers hacked already?

I was just hipped to the fact that two DNS servers apparently operated by Network Solutions aren't returning valid results for some domains, notably www.google.com: [pvenezia@mba ~]$ nslookup www.google.com Server: 172.16.32.10 Address: 172.16.32.10#53 Non-authoritative answer: www.google.com canonical name = www.l.google.com. Name: www.l.google.com Address: 64.233.169.147 Name: www.l.google.com Address: 64.233.
