8.2.3 on sunspar(solaris7)

Sun said there were 5 known vulnerabilities on 8.1.2

and they 'claim' that the 4 severe ones have been fixed.
only one was still open, and they were working on it.

It's been quite some time since I worked with Solaris again, but I have to
say I'm major disappointed in the way they maintain their bind releases.
I guess it will be shadowing the current DNS with a 8.2.3 implementation for
a couple of month, and slowly transfer clients.

Thank god i'm not the content maintainer of DNS.

Kind regards,

Gody Keijzer.

	Seeing as there are security holes in the version Sun ships, and 
the only way to get a more secure version is to either download the 
source yourself from the ISC site and build it, or trust the binaries 
built for you on the SunFreeware site, your choices are pretty 

	Are you going to be secure or not?  If so, then you ignore what 
Sun gives you.
