Debian + Verisign's .com/.net hijack



Hi all,

By now probably everybody has heard about Verisign's latest change to
the .net and .com domains (otherwise read about it in your favourite
tech news site). While the security of dns per se is not really
affected, the change influences other services such as spam
countermeasures.

Patches for various dns servers to get back to the old behaviour of the
dns system have been published. For example, the ISC has just released
an "official" patch for BIND9.

I wonder if there are plans to make security upgrades of the dns servers
shipped with Debian. Any comments?

Regards,

Oliver
