I have a RedHat 5.11 machine and currently I am facing the issue with BIND
vulnerability CVE-2015-5477. I cannot update my BIND using yum because I
didn't install BIND from RedHat at the first place so I need to do it

I downloaded the package of version 9.9.7-P2 from isc website but since it
is not an rpm file I have to build it myself.

I followed the instructions I found on website
but it does not change the version of bind. I don't know what I am doing

I am wondering if you can give me a little guideline on how to build and
install the new version.


Thank you
