Sorry folk, this fell between the atlantic crack that is between me and
Olafur, hence the delay.
I hope this is what we are looking for. Comments and suggestions are
PS I was talking to a journalist who approached me with something that
he thought was a DNS hijack. He wants to run a story on DNSSEC as a
counter meassure and he will talk to me tomorrow. Anyway, this is the
thing he came with.
He spoke to a porn-host shop that admitted that they payed a 1000 euro
to get about a million http transactions rerouted to their sites (often
with spam). The journalist believed that this was accomplished with DNS
spoofing. I think he is not correct and that we are dealing with virus
bots. I hope I can be convinced about the contrary because this seems an
interesting black hat use case. I will try to find out more, anybody
here knows more about this kind of fraud?
