If you think a website has problems as far as security issues is concerned then better check out the domain names as well. Why these domain name service providers are the least things that can create problems to network security issues, apparently there are flaws that many would find interesting to hear about.
A large number of network security professionals have been gathered in Las Vegas for the annual Black Hat computer security conference and among the main topics to be discussed include the most anticipated presentation of IO’s Dan Kaminsky regarding flaws in the Domain Name Service software.
The flaw was reportedly discovered quite some time ago but was kept under wraps. So now, the participants over at the Black Hat computer security conference will learn first hand about the details of this flaw.
As a professional, you would think that these issues didn’t even cover domain name handling. But apparently in the world of technology, nothing is excluded. You just never know what to expect and if you value computer and network security, it would be best to cover all aspects starting from your software all the way down to the least expected components of your IT infrastructure. You just never know what could possibly be contracted and it may become a big issue in the long run.
The most anticipated presentation at the show, however, will be IOActive’s Dan Kaminsky when he unveils details of the flaw he discovered in Domain Name Service software. The flaw had been kept under wraps in an attempt to proactively convince major network suppliers and operators to patch the flaw before information about it was made public. Unfortunately, the flaw was leaked to the public on a blog site, and the race was on to patch servers before hackers could exploit the vulnerability.
