    Default DNS Flaw-Poisoning

    I am concerned about this as I do not know what I can exactly do to help prevent my home computer from falling foul of it.
    I checked Dan Kaminskys
    website Doxpara.com
    and it said originally "Your name server, at XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX, may be safe, but the NAT/Firewall in front of it appears to be interfering with its port selection policy. The difference between largest port and smallest port was only 84".


    Now it doesnt work at all when I click the test
    button.
    Is there a patch I can use?
    Is there anything I can do security wise apart from running a firewall?
    I am a virgin customer (once telewest).
    Do I ask them if they have patched this flaw?
    What can I do to protect myself?
    Thanks in advance.

    If your router/gateway is not the dns server, which is the domain name server for the domain name lookups for the computers of your local area network, then do not worry about it.
