DNS hacking hits whatsapp, AVG and Avira

http://www.techworm.in/2013/10/whatsapp-avira-and-avg-hacked-by-kdms.html

a hacker got his hold on the handles for those domainnames and redirected them to pages with defacements so each time somebody wanted to go to the official websites they came at these pages instead

being sure that all DNS servers over the whole world are cleaned of the redirect-change can take hours or days (depending on the refresh)

imagine there was a zeroday download or in the a version of the software that has been tampered with (or infected somewhere or with a hidden account)
