DNS: The sky is falling

In April I speculated about the impending doom of the DNS.

Now we know what was in the works, and yes, it’s not a pretty picture.

My idea from april doesn’t work 1:1, as the attacker doesn’t attack a single target, sondern arbitrary other hostnames in the same domain.

Anyway, I spent the last days analyzing data from .at nameserver regarding patch discipline in Austria. You can read the depressing results here.
