ZDNet: Attack Code Published for DNS Flaw

A few hours ago Ryan Naraine at ZDnet reported that DNS vulnerability attack code has been published.


The urgency to patch Dan Kaminsky’s DNS cache poisoning vulnerability just went up a few notches.

Exploit code for the flaw, which allows the insertion of malicious DNS records into the cache of the target nameserver, has been added to Metasploit, a freely distributed attack/pen-testing tool.

According to Metasploit creator HD Moore (left), who teamed up with researcher |)ruid to create the exploit, a DNS service has also been created to assist with the exploit.
