If you do this patch, test it carefully. I have had serious resolution
problems with the patch on FreeBSD 4.8, and somebody else on bind9-users
with Solaris had the same.

Unless you host applications or networks that break, I would suggest
waiting a few days to see if an updated version becomes available.

I am nullrouting the IP addresses of Verisign's spam webservers for now.


We have met the enemy, and he is us.
