Expert: SOA vulnerable to DNS security flaw, too

This just in from the Black Hat security confab currently taking place in Las Vegas: Dan Kaminsky, a well-known IT security researcher, disclosed his findings around the Domain Name Server flaw (or DNS cache poisoning vulnerability), and where it can bite. Tim Wilson of Dark Reading reported on Kaminsky's presentation, who said the flaw enables attackers "to exploit the DNS design to quickly guess the transaction ID of an address query and potentially re-route the user to an unexpected domain.
