Forwarded from: JohnE37179at_private Attacking routers or root name servers (like all other systems) can come from two directions...outside the firewall and inside the firewall. As surveyafter survey and experience tells us, the majority of attacks on any system are not from the script kiddies, but from the inside -- from people with authorization. Authorization can be compromized in so many ways. We live in a world where 4% of the people opening bank accounts have identities that have been stolen or fraudulently compromised. Fictional resumes are so prolific that there ought to be a Noble Prize for fiction for the fake resume. By concentrating on the attack from outside the firewall without securing the system from within we only lock the windows while leaving the door wide open.
