A STORY published by IDG claiming that the creator of the Metaploit 
hacking toolkit, H D Moore, had been caught by the Kaminsky DNS cache 
exploit, is a load of old pants.

The story claimed that Moore's company, BreakingPoint, had some of its 
Internet traffic redirected to a fake Google page that was being run by 
a scammer.

Moore was quoted as saying the hacker was able to do this by launching 
what's known as a cache poisoning attack on a DNS server on AT&T's 
network that was serving the Austin, Texas, area.

However now Moore claims he was misquoted by the journalist in question.
