    Attack code published for DNS flaw

    The urgency to patch Dan Kaminsky’s DNS cache poisoning vulnerability just went up a few notches.

    Exploit code for the flaw, which allows the insertion of malicious DNS records into the cache of the target nameserver, has been added to Metasploit, a freely distributed attack/pen-testing tool.

    According to Metasploit creator HD Moore (left), who teamed up with researcher |)ruid to create the exploit, a DNS service has also been created to assist with the exploit.

    The code takes aim at known deficiencies in the DNS protocol and common DNS implementations that aid in serious cache poisoning attacks.
