Well quite clearly Dino is a faggot then.

I want Dino whoever he is to come on Full-Disclosure and explain what's awesome about it?

Its an old bug being used to market a security conference called Blackhat and thats all there is to it.

Its definitely an overhyped bug!!!

The bad guys have been able to poison the DNS cache for years!!! It was just ignored by the industry before... now some guy called Dan Kaminsky has decided to copy & paste it from the web and mass mailed it to vendors after all these years.

If the internet was gonna fall apart it would of happened by now.

All the best,
