Re: Strange bind crash on PPC G5 PowerMac running Squeeze plus 2.6.39 backports kernel

Hi all,

I'm not sure whether this is the right place to mention this or not,
however we're experiencing a problem on one of our PPC G5 Mac servers
and was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction?

Basically we have an old PPC G5 Mac which we have re-purposed to become
a wireless access point for our office. It's currently running Debian
Squeeze with a 2.6.39 backports kernel. The problem is that every so
often (perhaps once every 1-2 weeks) the bind daemon, which is
configured to forward requests to another nameserver, locks hard and can
only be removed by kill -9 followed by a restart. AFAICT no other
daemons on the server seem to be affected.


There is currently a vulnerability in Bind9, which makes it crash. You may be in this case.
