Those folks sure were prescient as Microsoft recently
had to patch its DNS implementation -- a patch that itself caused problems
such as Exchange outages.
Nevertheless, Microsoft is "urgently
warning" IT to patch their DNS. The vulnerability can allow spoofing
attacks, although no such attacks have yet been reported.
