9.1 Apply Applicable Updates


Over time, patches will be released to resolve defects in BIND. It is recommended that such patches be applied soon after they are available based on risk. High risk vulnerabilities should be patched within 30 days of availability.


By ensuring that BIND remains current and patched, the probability of an attacker successfully compromising BIND is reduced.
