Vixie on SANS on BIND vulnerabilities

Paul Vixie shares his Thoughts About “Protection Against BIND”,
in which he reacts to the latest
SANS Top 20 Vulnerabilities List, pointing out that there
are no recent exploits, some of the configuration advice is lame or worse, and dDoS attacks on otherwise secure software is not a “vulnerability”.
While the SANS Top 10 and Top 20 lists have always been useful awareness tools and helpful basic guidance, there is always a tendency in a complex field for consensus guidance to turn to overgeneralized mush. Intelligent criticism like this is a good thing.
