Apparently there was a MEGA flaw in the way DNS servers work–the backbone of the Internet, basically, had a gaping security flaw.

It’s all better now, we’re told, but it is a bit scary (yet reassuring) that we didn’t hear about it til it was fixed. The geek factor is over my head, so I’m just going to point you at the accountingweb article. The important bit, according to them, is NOT the flaw, but the way over 80 different rival companies and organizations banded together to get it fixed.

    So, we shouldn’t worry that people can hijack our banking info? And we should be glad that they’re “joining hands” to fix it?

    My only question is, should we now be worried because they explained what the glitch is and possibly gave someone an idea they didn’t have before?

    This kind of article makes me insane!

    Just my 2 cents.
