Excerpts from internet.computing.bugtraq: 22-Jul-97 Named Config Files
by Gus Huber () PBX ORG
just noticed something the otherday that made me think twice about alloing
my users to modify the named files for their domains...

There are easier ways to crash BIND if you are allowed to dynamic
update it. Deleting a record, adding it back, and then deleting it
again in one update packet crashes BIND, or so I've had reported to me
by the guy who does that sort of thing.
