DNS attacks on popular websitesSeptember 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.
