Greetings from Las Vegas, it's again that time of the year.
Black Hat 2008 is in full swing and DEF CON will start tomorrow.
On the first day of Black Hat the most popular presentation was, as could be expected, Dan Kaminsky's DNS talk. The room was totally packed while Dan went through in detail what exactly was the story behind the biggest vulnerability announcement of the year.
Dan actually spent most of his talk coming up with creative ways on how to exploit this DNS problem and combine it with other vulnerabilities - quite creative. Bottom line; if DNS doesn't work, pretty much nothing will work.
