in thread Stay aware of security

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 bugs. In any case, those who use Bind 8.. should upgrade to Bind 8.2.3

p.s. It's not only linux systems but all unix systems running Bind DNS.

[Corion]: marto: Thanks for pointing me to Tinc - I found at least some article that suggests that what I want would be possible with Tinc. Now I can try that out :)
[marto]: I think you can do what you want without too much hassle, but yeah, please try and let me know if it works well :)
[marto]: sadly I've still not remembered the name of that x86 all in one we discussed
[Corion]: marto: Heh - I looked at the Intel things and they were all at EUR 80 or upwards, and that's a bit too much (or rather, for that money, I'd look for a NAS already)
[marto]: click bait marketing is making it harder to find stuff I can't remember based upon a few terms :(
