Red Hat / CentOS Bind 9 packages

Earlier this week, the Internet Systems Consortium (ISC) released an advisory about two critical security problems in the BIND 9 software.  The first problem is that BIND can keep certain domains in it’s cache that were previously deleted.  The second is a bug that can cause recursive servers to crash and leak data.

An updated version to the BIND 9 DNS software has been released.  Red Hat and CentOS have released packages for the security patch.  Update now!
