    Go on, have a guess
    Unfortunately, that information isn't much use without a properly compiled list for the comon OS's since most flavours of Linux backport fixes nowadays and the information in that report is purely for the ISC bind version, so is only relevant for people who install it from source. Do you know of a proper CVE number or bugtraq ID that would give better information?

    Are there any updates on this please? I see cPanel has issued an all-out precautionary message regarding this although it seems to apply only to FreeBSD in the warning message.

    Code:
    root@nameserver [/etc]# rpm -qa bind
    bind-9.2.4-7_EL3
    This is an RHE3 nameserver with cpanel, I'm assuming CentOs is also using a similar backported version.
    According to Redhat's errata this has been adressed in bind-9.2.4-7_EL3 For RHE3 and 4

    If anyone else has any input I'm sure we'd all like to know.

    Anyone know if Fedora Core 2 is affected by these? (bind-9.2.3-13)?
