DNS Cache Poisoning Public Exploit Code Available

July 25th, 2008 . by DarkFiber Consulting

DarkFiber Consulting is aware of publicly available exploit code for a cache poisoning vulnerability in common DNS implementations. Exploitation of this vulnerability may allow an attacker to cause a nameserver’s clients to contact the incorrect, and possibly malicious hosts for particular services. As a result, web traffic, email and other important network data could be redirected to systems under the attacker’s control.

DarkFiber Consulting strongly urges administrators to patch affected systems immediately. Please review the following DarkFiber Consulting documents for further details:
