De acuerdo con Dan Kaminsky, el 10% de los DNS revisados en sus análisis son
vulnerables a ataque de DNS Cache poisoning.
In a DNS cache poisoning attack, miscreants replace the numeric addresses of
popular Web sites stored on the machine with the addresses of malicious sites.
The scheme redirects people to the bogus sites, where they may be asked for
sensitive information or have harmful software installed on their PC. The
technique can also be used to redirect e-mail, experts said.
