+ - DNS spoofing raises its ugly head

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "In a newly released paper, security researcher Amit Klein from Trusteer demonstrates how DNS spoofing is still possible (after all these years...) with BIND 9. Since most DNS servers out there are BIND 9, so this has a serious effect on the security of the whole DNS infrastructure."

+ - Leopard could attract Windows switchers

MacAddict (666) writes "Prudential Equity has raised its rating and target price on Apple stock. Analysts there now see Apple as an 'overweight' stock, raising the target price 20 per cent, from $100 to $105. Prudential cites expectations of higher Mac sales, better margins and new product launches — including a widescreen, flash-based video iPod in the second half of the year — as catalysts for better performance from Apple. The 27 March announcement of Adobe CS3 is likely to generate a spike in sales of Apple's professional Macs, Prudential said. "Given that Microsoft's Vista has not been very well received by the consumer, a successful Leopard launch could drive more consumers to shift form Windows-based PCs to Macs," said the analysts, according to MacNN. Prudential's analysis emerges as Banc of America analyst Keith Bachman speculates that the release of Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard will add $200 million to Apple revenue this year, observing that the Mac OS X user base now sits at 22 million users. http://www.macworld.co.uk/business/news/index.cfm? newsid=17406"
