Our users value stability and security above anything else, when it comes to BIND. Every time we have to issue a security advisory we are inconveniencing thousands of network administrators. We also know they would rather be informed if there is some way to compromise or crash BIND. So, when we read that Codenomicon discovered the Heartbleed bug in OpenSSL, we decided to contact Codenomicon directly and learn if they would scan BIND as well. I was a bit worried that BIND might be next in the news, if we had a hidden serious defect; we decided to find out.
