These are just idiotic machines trying to update your DNS database remotely.

The only way to stop the update attempts is to have the originators reconfigure
their clients.

You can, however, just simply ignore the messages; you could even throw away
*all* messages in the "security" category, if you want. But that wouldn't be

The only difference BIND 9 might make to this is perhaps the logging categories
are different.
