The BIND security vulnerability announced by ISC on July 28th, enables an attacker to send a specially crafted Dynamic Update request that can crash a DNS name
Sshdkit uses a special algorithm to generate two DNS names
, and if they both refer to the same IP address, that address is converted to a different IP to which the Trojan sends the stolen information.
This will add tens or hundreds of billions of DNS names
There are several architectural attributes that enable this type of interface to work successfully, not the least of which is an auto-discovery capability that automatically identifies the physical elements associated with the storage environment, including host names, host IDs, DNS names
, and domain names of network cards for devices such as tape libraries.
Using these online antivirus resources can have some risks when uploading binaries or files that may contain some sensitive information like your IP address, usernames, passwords or DNS names
In addition, Windows 2000 domain names are DNS names
Without tight integration between IP addressing and DNS names
, each reconfiguration would disrupt the host names - and therefore the users - for two to three days.
F5 BIG-IP solutions deliver automated, real-time DNSSEC signing--a particularly critical feature for dynamic zones that contain globally load balanced DNS names
An infected machine is unable to update its antivirus program, as the Trojan overwrites the host file that Microsoft(TM) Windows(TM) uses to manually override DNS names

, IP and MAC addresses of a network
Levon Esibov, Product Manager for MS Windows2000 DNS, said "I can confirm successful zone transfers from NUBIND to Windows 2000 DNS server and I can confirm that Windows 2000 DNS server supports UTF-8 encoded characters in DNS names
This will allow our customers to have transparent DNS names
for their mail servers so that mail can be reached from anywhere regardless of local network topology," Byrnes added.
