In light of the new DNS cache poisoning issue and now that everyone has
had plenty of time to apply patches, I've decided to release a new version
of my nameserver security scanner called porkbind. It is a multi-threaded
nameserver scanner that can recursively query nameservers of subdomains
for version strings. (i.e. sub.host.dom's nameservers then host.dom's
nameservers) After acquiring the version strings it tests them against
version numbers from CERT advisories and reports back to the user. Zone
transfer capability is also tested for. It is available for download at:
