As I understand the issue. The issue is one of being able to poison the DNS app on the DNS server. There's not really much the casual user can do, aside from switching to another DNS/IP address that's safe. But the rub is, do you really know if the DNS/IP you're switching to is safe!
The best approach, would probably be a system to allow you to poll a few DNS servers, and to take the returned ip address that comes back from the most of them as the "correct" ip address!! but this isn't implemented anywhere as far as i know.... peace.. -----Original Message----- From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] Behalf Of Mikkel L.

And it is a concern even if you do not run a name server, because you could find yourself going to a web site other then the one you wanted.
