Submission + - Routing and DNS security ignored by ISPs

Bismillah writes: The re-routing of Google's public DNS servers last weekend was yet another example of how easy it is to "steal the Internet" by abusing today's trust-based networks.

Problem is, ISPs don't seem to care about that, or securing DNS which is another attack vector that doesn't require compromising endusers' systems.

Why isn't more done to secure routing and DNS then?
