Is this something we should be concerned about?

Yahoo this morning have released this statement http://uk.news.yahoo.com/afp/20080709/ttc-us-it-internet-software-crime-e0bba4a.html
If I use the DNS checker at http://www.doxpara.com/ it says "Your name server, at ?.?.?.?, appears vulnerable to DNS Cache Poisoning"
I understand this could be a hoax but if it is it's got Yahoo fooled too.

Bob Milton already started a thread on this.

The essence is that it will be fixed before it becomes a problem.  Download your windows updates (or linux updates if applicable)
Plusnet are already on the case of upgrading their DNS servers.

Thanks Barry, I thought I'd checked through all new posts this morning but must have missed it.

Watch out when doing the latest windows update if you run ZoneAlarm - http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php/topic,66405.0/topicseen.html
