DNS Exploit Now Officially Breeched

Recently a DNS exploit was discovered by Dan Kaminsky. This exploit was reportedly so big that he decided to keep the details close to hand until everyone had a chance to plug their DNS servers, however this plan failed somewhat and details of it got online.

Whilst most people fixed their DNS some major players like AT&T and Apple are still yet to fix the issue, and the first released reports of the exploit being performed came to light today.

Whilst there are incidents prior to this known by Dan Kaminsky he has signed NDA’s to keep the details quiet.

Lets hope people start to look more seriously at fixing this one huh.
