Bind patches are out

Several versions of Bind were updated with patches this morning.  The patches, according to the release notes found here, read as follows:

"Named could return SERVFAIL for negative responses from unsigned zones."

So if you are running Bind, be sure and update here.

Hi Joel you will probably add this to the dumb question of the day pile but here goes anyway...Is the Bind update really a security/vulnerability fix? It appears to only have fixed an "operational" issue. While Ops patching is important, I am more specifically concerned with vulnerabilities and I want to make sure this is prioritized correctly.
It may not be security related, but since Bind is so widely used, I thought I'd better post something about it.
