Submission + - Patch your DNS servers faster - Austrian CERT (cert.at)

51mon writes: "Austrian CERT used data from one of their authoritative DNS server to measure the rate at which the latest DNS patche (source port randomization) is being rolled out to larger recursive name servers.

Whilst about half the traffic they receive is now using source port randomization, their data suggests that this is due to ISPs who roll out such fixes immediately and the rate of patching has fallen to disappointingly low levels since.

If your ISP isn't patched, perhaps it is time to switch.

Half your DNS belong to us."
