Phishers using DNS servers to lure victims?

A CNet post warns:
"Online thieves looking for personal data may be moving to more active measures by redirecting people from legitimate sites to malicious ones, security experts said this week. The warning follows reports Friday that some people's computers were being redirected from sites such as eBay and Google to malicious Web servers that attempted to install spyware. The compromises affected 30 to 40 networks, according to Jason Lam (PDF file), incident handler for the Internet Storm Center, which tracks network threats."

When we can no longer trust the DNS, the whole Internet will be in deep yoghurt.
