Is there an expected date when the latest version of bind9 (that fixes
the recently discussed DNS vulnerability) will be merged into the 6.3-STABLE tree. I patch and update fairly regularly and
bind -v gives me: BIND 9.3.5-P1   I believe the patched version
is something like 9.5.0-P?...


Patches against the Kaminsky attack were released for all of the
supported BIND branches.  9.3.5-P1 is a patched version.  You can verify
that your bind is patched by using the dns oarc tester:


or manually by:

  dig +short porttest.dns-oarc.net TXT

If it reports 'poor' you still need to fix your server.  Beware of NAT
gateways which can reduce the randomness with which source ports are
used in passing.
