The Ultimate DNS Bug?

I subscribe to a lot of tech blogs. I’m sorta amazed that I didn’t hear about this sooner and I’m somewhat confused now that I have!

I saw it on Chris Blizzard‘s site and he links to the O’Reilly article about it.

The jist is that there’s some “holy shit” bug that threatens every single implementation of DNS and that the dude who found it will be letting the cat out of the bag on Aug 3 of this year.

The video is a bit weird though. The panning of the audience and the guy’s delivery almost make it seem like a parody or a joke. It can’t be, though, right?
