Firstly I am very happy with powerdns, I found it easy to setup and
I guess this is a type of feature request, the current situation
(POWERDNS 2.9.13) a lookup of
host -t txt version.bind 127.0.0.1
version.bind text "Served by POWERDNS 2.9.13 $Id: packethandler.cc,v 1.19 2003/11/23 15:14:57 ahu Exp $"
I think this is too much information leak, the version number
(2.9.13) does not need to be there at least. I am proposing something
similar to apache with it's ServerTokens directive
So giving the ability to hide version number if preferred (w/o
editing code / re-compiling).
Perhaps another way would be to allow the user to have an entry in
the DB for a TXT lookup on version.bind and specify whatever they
liked there (I tried this but it didn't seem to work).
Thanks for a neat dns server :)
