The Internet Software Consortium rather silently released new bugfix versions of BIND this week. If you're tired of constantly updating BIND, consider DJBDNS.

    The ISC posting on their web page, devoid of details, says the following:

    ISC has discovered or has been notified of several bugs which can result in vulnerabilities of varying levels of severity in BIND as distributed by ISC. Upgrading to BIND version 9.2.2 is strongly recommended. If you cannot upgrade, BIND 8.3.4, 8.2.7, and 4.9.11 are available.

    A few years ago, very tired of upgrading BIND every few months, I switched all my name servers to DJBDNS, a suite of DNS servers and libraries that can do everything BIND does. Well, everything but require frequent upgrades and bug fixes.
