DNS Attacks Taking Place

Dan Kaminsky of IOActive discovered that there were recent attacks happening on the DNS (domain name system) and he claims that more attacks are very likely. The DNS system is the backbone of the naming system, directing registered domain names to their numerical IP addresses. The recent attacks exploit vulnerabilities in the DNS and redirect internet users to malicious sites, even in cases where the user typed in a legitimate domain name.
