Hi,



I noticed an interesting side-effect of the co-ordinated DNS patching after
the news broke out on Tues July 8th. Some DNS servers started seeing more
than normal amount of query traffic, most likely due to the fact that the
patched DNS clients and resolvers had their caches reset and hence had to
resolve new domains. More interestingly, all these clients began their new
DNS resolutions around the same time. For more details please read the blog
article at:

Thanks,

Stop adding to the media over hype FFS, its a gay bug being used to
market Blackhat security conference, think about the timing of the
announcement and media over hype carnage and say to yourself "Why
now?".

All the best,
