Announcement: New RIPE NCC E-Learning Module DNS Vulnerabilities

I sent this as an official announcement to several RIPE mailing lists, and I am sending it to you because I think you would appreciate this information too.

The RIPE NCC announced today the launch of "DNS vulnerabilities", the second module of our DNSSEC E-Learning course.

This module explains two common DNS security problems: "Man in the Middle" and "Kaminsky Attack".

It can be viewed at:

We will be releasing more modules in the coming months, including: Module 3 DNSSEC and RIPE Database Modules.

The RIPE NCC E-Learning is a free service that is available to everyone. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at

I hope this is useful for you.
