DNS attacks on popular websites

September 4, 2011 – 5:03 PM

Keep in mind that today’s DNS hacks of popular websites such as acer.com, ups.com, theregister.co.uk were just that.  A DNS hack.  The actual sites themselves have not been compromised.  For example:

UPS.com was altered to point to ups.com.85621INNSns1.yumurtakabugu.com

The attackers only changed the NS records for the website.  This could have been much worse.
