Good idea for the warning, but I think many sys admin's should
not have fallen prey to this attack - since the worm
uses the security hole in Bind. Most have upgraded, if not..
I guess that's a good
lesson in procrasination. :(
The Bind warning of the security bug has been out for some
time and most who have not upgraded ... well, they usually
haven't due to personal reasons (i.e. home server) or have
not considered the consequences thoroughly. It was only
a matter of time, where someone would exploit these
. In any case, those who use Bind 8.. should upgrade
p.s. It's not only linux systems but all unix systems
running Bind DNS.
