That is "0.4%" in the original Dark Reading article, you just made the 
scaremongering 10 times worse ;) (0.4% would give 68,000 from 17 million).

They say ".4", without the leading zero which makes it easy to misread.

I doubt 0.4% is significantly different from in the past (although I don't 
have figures to prove that assertion), when accidental poisoning episodes 
were pretty common due to poorly designed and implemented resolvers.

I'm willing to believe botnet operators are getting interested in DNS.
