Re: New BIND 4 & 8 Vulnerabilities

Only gotcha I remember running into is for some reason when I did an uninstall bind 8.* / install bind 9.2.1

For some reason there where 2 bind scripts in /etc/init.d/ one named bind and one bind9 it messed with named running right so I killed bind script and left the /etc/init.d/bind9

As always.. make a back up of your Master Zone Files and if you run into any major problems you have your MZF files to rely on :)

We're still on named 8.3.3-REL-NOESW (currently in stable).

Is it much of a headache to upgrade to 9.2.x? Any particular procedure or
guide you followed that could be read somewhere?
