Re: how to protect name servers against cache corruption

a BIND 4.9.6 or 8.1.1 server is immune.  so, you could upgrade.  to so do,
see http://www.isc.org/isc/ which will lead you to ftp://ftp.isc.org/isc/.
(the root name servers are all running modern software at this point.)

... but not all run BIND 4.9.6 or 8.1.1:

$ for i in a b c d e f g h i j k l m; do
echo $i.root-servers.net
host -t txt -c chaos version.bind $i.root-servers.net
done
a.root-servers.net
VERSION.BIND            TXT     "named 4.9.5-P1 Tue Apr 22 16:46:54 EDT 1997\
