P.S. AboveNet is taking the latest BIND vunerability(ies) seriously enough
that they are beginning wholescale scans of their address space. Draw your
own conclusions related to masking version numbers.

As far as I know, Paul Vixie is the CTO for AboveNet's parent
organization. I think it's pretty clear that they understand the issues.
