DNS leak shows that North Korea has 28 .kp sites




A DNS leak shows that there are 28 sites with a North Korean top level domain. The number came to light after a name server of the country was accidentally configured to set up global DNS connections.

This discovery Matt Bryant, a security engineer who found the flaw by accident “because he always scans all DNS servers in the world of error. He calls himself a “nerd obsessed with dns’ in an interview Motherboard.

Bryant put the entire list on its GitHub page where he explains how he gathered data. Through a afxr-request for name servers, a copy can be obtained from the top-level domain data of a country. Every two hours an attempt is made from the TLDR project to look at a name server, something that did so Tuesday.

The data shows that the country has only 28 websites under tld .kp, including that of an airline, a kind of social network, a newspaper, a cooking site and a film fund.
