Threat From DNS Bug Isn’t Over, Experts Say

The Domain Name Server design flaw that threatened the entire Internet earlier this year has mostly been patched, but the threat is far from over, experts say.

But the patch doesn’t fix the DNS flaw — it only makes it more difficult for attackers to exploit it, Kaminsky and other experts are quick to say. While hackers ramp up their DNS exploits, DNS server makers and operators likely face another round of patching that will occur before the end of the year.
