Re: DNS Amplification Attacks
Where did that come from? I respect you but please, let's have a technical discussion. This is important enough for us all to avoid the flame-wars for now. Don't move this thread to politics or lunacies.Recursion the way it is set now with most DNS implementations, is the problem being exploited by spoofing. It is true spoofing is bad for our health, but that does not mean we should ignore what actually gets exploited, which is recursive name servers open to the world. Fixing the one does not mean we shouldn't fix the other.But fixing recursion also fixes the internet (fixes as in how you fix a dog) in that he who controls the DNS controls the net. Fixing DNS is going to hand over strict control to governments because now they can prevent you from resolving anything they don't want you to resolve.
