n3td3v,

Dino's beyond well respected in the security community.  Also, you
won't know if it is an overhyped bug until Black Hat, and you might
have to reverse your opinion and statements after the details are
released.  Although I will say this, it could still qualify as the
most overhyped bug, even if it also wins the most awesome bug, because
the hype on this has been amazingly huge.

Finally n3td3v, I've agreed with some of your posts, but I don't
understand why you are against people making money in the security
industry.  I mean, what's wrong with making money?  Gotta pay the
bills somehow, better then being a janitor.

Perhaps if you bothered to read anywhere close to as much as you
write, you would have seen that Dino, one of the judges, specifically
disqualified this bug from the Pwnies for being too awesome:

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,

n3td3v
