I had this question in my post weeks ago. No one bothered to reply. Older poisoning is why the auth data must be within the same zone to be cached, but apparently no one bothered to question the wisdom of altering existing cache data.
Wish they'd just fix the fault in the logic and move on. Talking til everyone is blue in the face about protocol changes and encryption doesn't serve operations. There are recursive resolvers that work just fine without the issues some standard resolvers have. The protocol seems to work, some vendors just need to change how they use it and tighten up on cache integrity.
7) Have someone explain to me the repeated claims I've seen that djbdns and Nominum's server are not vulnerable to this, and why that is.
PowerDNS has this to say about their non-vulnerability status:
I know some very happy providers that haven't had to patch. I hope to be one of them on the next round.
