Subdomains

Current thinking is that the problem lies in subdomains. Hammer a DNS server with requests for ulam000001.theregister.co.uk, ulam000002.theregister.co.uk etc until you get a hit. In each packet, request an additional RR return for an additional DNS response for ns1.theregister.co.uk and when you eventually get a hit on the random subdomain you just poisened ns1.
