Nominum Inc says a recently discovered flaw in the dominant domain name server on the internet is far more serious than originally thought, and could allow crackers to crash or even take control of any internet-connected application running on Unix, Kevin Murphy writes.
sorry if this has already been covered
VP of product management at Nominum, which has released a product that fixes the problem.
Honi soit qui mal y pense...
The bug in question dates back to the 1980s ... and still remains in most flavors of Unix, though Windows and Linux are unaffected.
Macs are safe as well. Which means that we're talking about a potential danger for roughly 0.35% of all computers out there, most of which already have patches available.
Yup, the urgency of Nominums $30,000.- workaround is really evident! ;)
