anyone know if the current cert warning (Nov 14) on DNS affects iSeries?
Aix group has posted a site for patches & info.

1. MAJOR SECURITY MALFUNCTION IN BIND 4 AND 8
CERT reports multiple serious vulnerabilities in that lynchpin of the
Internet, the Berkeley Internet Name Domain (BIND) server, otherwise
known as the DNS name server. The problems affect BIND versions 4.9.5
through 4.9.10, 8.1, 8.2 through 8.2.6, and 8.3.0 through 8.3.3.

The flaws can result in server crashing, denial of service attacks,
and super-user account compromise and consequent loss of control over
the server.
