(Note, I am no expert on dns poisoning, so I'm > not sure if the TTL is "attackable") I'm not sure if you can poison the entire cache of a stub resolver (which can't do recursive lookups on its own). I would expect that the effect is limited to a particular DNS record, which in turn should expire after the hard TTL limit (surely there is one).
