Florian,

Just to be clear, ICANN did reach out to all the ccTLDs and gTLDs that exhibited vulnerabilities in the weeks prior to Kaminisky's presentation. A significant number of them were able to patch before his talk. For many of the remaining TLDs with authoritative name servers that are still vulnerable, several secondaries are not directly under the control of the TLD managers and we're working with them to find appropriate and timely solutions.

Maybe.  But if it's a real problem, why doesn't ICANN make sure that
at least the gTLDs under its influence are protected before going
public?

On the other hand, if it's not that important, it's rather
questionable to associate it with the other DNS issues we're dealing
with right now.
