I was reading the Security Bloggers Network feed this morning. I had missed a day or so and had a lot of articles to go through. I was also thinking of what could be the next topic suggested for members to blog about as part of our cross-promotion with Black Hat. Than I realized there really was not any need. The topic was obvious, DNS. I didn't do an actual count of how many times it was mentioned (as Mr Bump did with NAC vendors mentioned in the Information Week NAC survey), but there had to be at least a dozen and half, if not more articles on the great DNS leak of 2008.
Dan Kaminsky's research was exemplary, but his naivete about people keeping the exploit under thier hat was not. While Thomas Matasano apologized for his mistake, frankly from the moment Havlar Flake begain speculating on it, it was just a matter of time.
Anyway, the cat is out of that bag, but something tells me that Dan K's presentation will still be a standing room only crowd in just a few weeks in Vegas. But beyond that there are still a bunch of good topics to be discovered at Black Hat. Not to mention lots of social activities brewing for both BH and DefCon. I amreally looking forward to it. I would hope that no one is feeling the air out of the ballon on this one!
