Iran seems to have been conducting the Mother of All DNS Hijackings over the last year, according to new research from FireEye. In its report, researchers describe a year-long DNS hijacking campaign that was equally stealthy and sophisticated. The hijacking has affected dozens of domains belonging to government, telecommunications and Internet infrastructure entities across the Middle East and North Africa, as well as Europe and North America.
