DNS attack types are getting more and more every year. Just as the Internet expands every day, unfortunately, online crime grows too. Motivations can be different. Extortion is on the top rank, but also boredom, people trying to prove their computing skills, the so-called hacktivism, or to take down a competitor.
In any case, different DNS attack types take advantage of the multiple Domain Name System (DNS) vulnerabilities. They have different ways to operate but all of them are dangerous for your business. Let’s get familiar with the most popular DNS attack types.
IPv6 is the sixth version of the Internet Protocol’s IP address. IPs are a set of rules that a device must follow when sending and receiving data from a host to a destination. As a result, you’ll need a list of recognizable hosts, their locations, IP addresses, and a communication path.
Since 1995, Internet Protocol version 6 has been in use. Despite this, IPv4 addresses have been hard to come by, among other issues. Despite this, the majority of companies continue to use the IPv4 protocol. Furthermore, according to an Internet Standard (IETF) issued in 2017, IPv6 utilization is likely to increase in the near future.
