*** DNS cache poisoning used to steal emails ***
---------------------------------------------
Does this happen in practice? CERT/CC researchers Jonathan Spring and Leigh Metcalf have evidence to suggest that it does. Using passive DNS data, they found a number of incorrect responses for A records belonging to mail servers of the big three webmail providers (Gmail, Yahoo! and Hotmail). Even though an increasing number of emails are sent over encrypted connections (using STARTTLS), there isnt really a way for the receiving mail server to enforce this, as HSTS does for secure HTTP
