Sonic.net uses multiple versions of BIND to support name services. The Internet Software Consortium has just disclosed multiple vulnerabilities in multiple versions of BIND. For those of you running BIND, patches are available here:

Sonic.net was on an early distribution list for the patches, which were received 10:30pm Tuesday night, and were applied and running by 11:30pm Tuesday night. Thus, Sonic.net’s vulnerable BIND installations have been secured for over two days already. -Scott and Kelsey
