stating the obvious

This doesn't appear to be an ipv6 attack per se but simply most modern operating systems will use ipv6 if it is available by default and indeed perform dns lookups using it by preference.

If you are a network engineer or security specialist surely as part of your 'normal' working practices you would apply the same diligence to ipv6 as ipv4.

Appears to be more 'fear' advertising.
