This is not new news – but reading this article is a must. It’s well written, and describes how Kaminsky discovered major holes in the overall Internet design. I assume, based on the article, that this is all repaired at this point; however, the take away is clear to me – security holes are not obvious, and if the wrong person finds them first, we’re in trouble. This also underscores the need for better detection and response in the system. I’d urge you to read this, learn the key sound bites, and build this story into the stories you share with clients on risk…Thanks to my friend Tim for passing this along!
