I recently started working for this company and within a week of working 
here there was already a break in. It was easy to spot since they were 
using an insecure version of bind, but I wasn't able to upgrade to a 
version higher then 8.2.3 because they other admin. is scared of 
incompatibilities and learning something new. I was hoping that someone 
could help me out on how much has changed from 8.2 to 9.x. What would I 
need to change on my servers if this upgrade was possible? And is it simple 
to do? All of our servers our Redhat 7.0 with bind 8.2.3 running on it.
