zone-h-attack-really-a-dns-hijacking

(0 comments)

According to the Register the recent 'defacement' of Zone-H was really a DNS hijacking. While it is not clear how the attackers took control of the domain, it points out the DNS system is not a reliable security mechanism. It is less likely that an attacker would get contorl of a major financial institution's DNS registration (or is it?), but DNS-cache poisoning is very likely.

While we're on the subject of Man-in-the-middle attacks, ComputerWorld warns users of WiFi based MITM attacks.
