Default DNS flaw reanimates slain evil sites as ghost domains

From http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/02...ains_dns_vuln/

Quote:
Cyber-crooks may be able to keep malicious domains operating for longer - even after they are revoked - by manipulating the web's Domain Name System (DNS).

A weakness in the cache update logic of many widely used DNS servers creates the potential to establish so-called ghost domains, according to a recent joint study by a team of researchers from universities in China and the US.
