Recent DNS security issue(?) fixed?
« on: July 12, 2008, 09:17:01 PM »
I am sure some people have hard about it.

From what I have been told, I just need to see if BIND has any updates in cpanel.

Has this been fixed in bind?
Would a cpanel update update my bind or do I have to go the yum way (and what commands I should pass as I don't want to screw up bind)?
Any suggestions or information related to this?

Thanks.

Hi,

This issue has been fixed by CentOS team. To install the fix you just need to run "yum update" and then restart BIND - "service named restart". All should go smoothly.

I hope this helps.
Kind Regards,
