I have a couple bind servers running CentOS 5.5 and running BIND which is version 9.3.6-P1-RedHat-9.3.6-4.P1.el5_5.3. I just read about the newest BIND vulnterability and it says to upgrade to 9.7.3. When I do a "yum check-upgrade" there are no BIND updates.
I know distros provide what they feel is the stable release of applications. What I would like to know is why my BIND is so far behind and how (or if) I should upgrade to resolve the security issue.
