Can someone poison the DNS records?
So I’ve pointed my domain name from my registrar to DigitalOcean’s name servers. Since there is no authentication on DigitalOcean to ensure I own the domain before I make DNS records for it, surely its possible that someone could create records for it and hijack it (albeit briefly) to go to where ever they want?
I presume there is some system in place to stop the duplication of records for a particular domain name but propose they made the records before you. Also, I understand that I could narrow the window of attack by setting up my DNS records first before I point to the name servers. I’m just interested in seeing if it was possible.
