Silent Push Dangling DNS Research Discussed at Virus Bulletin 2023

Silent Push at VB2023

Our CTO, John Jensen, and Senior Threat Analyst, Inês Véstia, were in London this month for VB2023.

John and Ines gave a talk on dangling DNS takeovers, in support of our research paper ‘Digital roads to nowhere: a re-assessment of dangling DNS records and subdomain takeovers’.

Dangling DNS records and subdomain takeovers are still not receiving the attention they deserve relative to their risk level and their history as attack vectors within the global cybersecurity community.

We’re hopeful that our research will serve as a reference point for security teams tasked with defending their organization’s public DNS presence, and help to reverse the global trend of an increasing number of takeover attacks.
