  • ISC Responds to Questions Raised About SRTT Algorithm Flaw

    This week several of our customers have contacted us to inquire about our reaction to an article entitled “Critical Vulnerability in BIND Software Puts DNS Protocol Security at Risk”

    ISC would like to clarify that we evaluated the risk from this issue in 2013 when it was disclosed to us, and do not judge it to be a “critical vulnerability” or feel that it “puts DNS protocol security at risk.” (read more..)
