Ben Galliart writes "The Internet Software Consortium released on Monday another patchlevel to their ever popular BIND software package. The ISC has recommended that everyone using BIND upgrade to this latest version (BIND v8.2.2 patchlevel 3) due to security holes existing in previous versions. If you are using a version previous to BIND 8.2.1 then pay special attention to the ISC configuration hints on a new required TTL setting which should be added to every zone file. More information on the TTL setting is also available in RFC 2038. On a side note, those who enjoy the bleeding edge should read the ISC future plans page which now has information on the thread-safe/multi-processor ready BIND version 9 (major rewrite) going beta in January.
