BIND

I just received an alert from HP about BIND. We have an rx6600 Itanium running hpux 11.31. If I grep for the process 'bind' I get the output below. I read the info on HP's site for overview of BIND but still am unclear about it. I am not familiar with the networking side of the house. Is BIND something that runs continuously or only when creating a telnet session out from the host? From the grep of the bind process it appears that the rpcbind has been running since July 1, is this the daemon for bind? Basically am wondering if this alert is something I need to be concerned about. Do we have an option of using something different from bind, how is this set.
I show the latest version of bind installed.
# what /usr/sbin/named | grep named
/usr/sbin/named:
named 9.3.2 $Revision: 2.0

ps -ef |grep bind
root 1025 1 0 Jul 1 ? 0:00 /usr/sbin/rpcbind
root 14758 22713 0 16:12:54 pts/0 0:00 grep bind

Re: BIND

rpcbind is different from the BIND (Berkeley Internet Name Daemon) that you received the alert about.

The processes that runs for BIND is 'named'. If you do a 'ps -ef |grep named' and don't see anything then you are safe.

Re: BIND

Shalom,

BIND is a Internet Name resolution service.

It is software provided on the Core OS and http://software.hp.com

There has been a recent release of BIND due to a new security problem exploited.

What needs to be done is installation of new depots and restart of the named service.

Re: BIND

Thank you, no processes running called 'named'.
