Step by step guide to the DNS vulnerability

Published by at 4:22 am under Hacking,Security Advisories

Got a few minutes?  Actually, more than just a few to be truthful.  If you’re at all curious about the intimate details of how Dan Kaminsky’s DNS vulnerability works, then you should review Steve Friedl’s “An Illustrated Guide to the Kaminsky DNS Vulnerability“.  This is not for the faint of heart or short of time; the paper starts with the basics of DNS and works it’s way up to explaining how and why Dan’s vulnerability works and why it’s so important. It’s about 20 screens long, so get a good cup of morning coffee, sit back and get edumicated.
