DNS Servers


#1

I am nervous about the recently revealed “redirection” flaw, and want to protect myself. Has DreamHost done anything to protect us? If not, what should we do?

Some advice is to change the DNS information on my router to opendns.com. However, I don’t know how that would affect my email and site hosting on DreamHost.

This is an issue at the client (you) end, and it’s up to your ISP to secure this. Here’s the website (and a test in the right margin) of the security researcher (Dan Kaminsky) who’s been discussing the exploit.
