Hey everybody,

I just recently started seeing all these unapproved updates hitting my
dns server in /var/log/messages. Is this a security risk? Do I need to
allow updates if it's a secondary dns server? If I don't allow updates,
then there would be no point to direct users to it...right? Because it
wouldn't be caching other hosts' info. Am I right on this or WAY OFF?
Thanks,

-Fab
