RE: how to protect name servers against cache corruption
Jeesh people... let's get some life here. Step out and enjoy the weekend will ya??? Upgrade to BIND 8.1.1 and deal with it. Some hack will figure it out and 9.0 will soon be on it's way.

BIND 4.9.6 and 8.1.1 are immune to all known attacks, including the one Eugene Kashpureff copied and put into wide public use recently. I know of attacks we are not immune to, which cannot be stopped without DNSSEC. My paper, whose URL I gave in the previous message, alludes to some of these without exactly giving a road map for their use.
