RE: Reasons why BIND isn't being upgraded

For several services, we keep a table of inhouse daemon/versions to real
daemons/versions. We haven't done this on bind yet, but thinking about it
now. We starting using it on FTP services a few years ago. That way we
know what version of wu-ftpd or apache (or whatever) we are running on a
server, but the script kiddies don't off the bat. Some of it *is*
customized, but we have version identifiers for those customized versions as
well. It's not that big of a hassle to keep track of the map - just a
simple hash to manage. Best of both worlds.
