Anyone else experience FairPoint DNS hijacking, this evening?

Between about 16:00 and 17:00, I got home from the mall and noticed
that all of my DNS lookups had started returning,
which was (and, apparently, *still is*) a webserver serving one page,
which reads:

                         [FairPoint logo]

        Welcome to the FairPoint Broadband Service web page.

        We apologize for the inconvenience, but your Web Browser (Chrome)
        and Operating System (Linux) are not currently compatible with
