    I am getting this error when running a check on my domain at DNSSTUFF.COM:

    One or more nameservers responded to version queries. This can be considered a breach of security. If a malicious person or program had access to a version-specific exploit for your DNS server, displaying the version info openly will make their attack much easier. This should be removed or obscured. The nameservers that responded to version queries are:

    198.24.xxx.xxx responded with "9.8.2rc1-RedHat-9.8.2-0.10.rc1.el6_3.6"
    198.24.xxx.xxx responded with "9.8.2rc1-RedHat-9.8.2-0.10.rc1.el6_3.6"

    Any ideas how to correct it?

    I am having exactly the same issue as people in that thread, and I am running WHM 11.34.1 (build 5), however, I do not see any line in my /etc/named.conf file with "version XXX". It must be located somewhere else in my version. Any ideas?
    Thank you.

    Add in /etc/named.conf , "options section" the line : version none;
    ===
    .....
    options
    {
    .................
    version none;
    };
    .....

    Will this edit to named.conf survive updates?
