Phishing – The Next Generation

Note: This post was originally part of my LinuxWorld blog; now migrated here after my resignation.In this piece over at New Scientist is the news that some of us have been expecting for a while – Phishing has moved on from simply redirecting people through spam emails, no hackers are going to do it by polluting the DNS namespace. If you haven’t already, make sure you’ve upgraded to the latest BIND (9.x) and then used the features like DNSSEC to ensure that the information is distributed about properly.
