There are reports that the following web sites were affected:
The nameservers for google.co.ma were changed on 9th May. The domain
resolved to a different IP address. That brought visitors to a web
site which wasn't hosted by Google. The .ug problem occurred between
11 May and 13 May. This is not a case of DNS cache
poisoning. DNSSEC does not offer any protection against SQL injection attacks.
