"It was about a year ago that security researcher Dan Kaminsky
reported his DNS flaw that affected many vendors and the internet
itself. DNS - particularly BIND 9 is now at risk from another flaw
for which an exploit is already available.
"BIND 9 is a popular open source DNS server, and arguably the
most deployed DNS server in use today. So even though this is a
flaw in one DNS server (as opposed to DNS itself which was
Kaminsky's flaw), it is highly critical."
