NetBSD: BIND Followup on negative cache poisoning vulernability Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Team   
NetBSD The following excerpts show that include/arpa/inet.h must beupdated from rev 1.12 that ships with 1.6.1 to rev which is thecurrent candidate for 1.6.2.

Hi all,

	A few days ago I performed the update described in SA 2003-018 for
upgrading from source. I run 1.6.1 on an i386. My system is stock 1.6.1, I
do not use -current.

	I ran into trouble and found a solution and I want to share this
with the community so the advisory or myself can be corrected, as

	The following excerpts show that include/arpa/inet.h must be
updated from rev 1.12 that ships with 1.6.1 to rev which is the
current candidate for 1.6.2.

	Thanks all,
- John>
