Researchers say DNS rebinding poses a potential risk and is impossible to trace.

NetworkWorld: A study by White Hat Security calls attention to a new kind of Internet browser threat known as "DNS rebinding." This strategy allows criminals to trick browsers into finding corporate information in internal servers and sending it the attacker.

Worst of all, this type of attack can't be caught by typical security measures because the browser doesn't appear to be doing anything out of the ordinary. "It's pretty much impossible to see. It leaves no traces," says White Hat Security's CTO Jeremiah Grossman.
