Thanks for your reply.  We have cache-ttl=0 for other reasons, so I think we're ok on the security issue.

We built PDNS staticly from from source.

I have been hoping to upgrade PDNS and other components for a while.  Hopefully, I can use your recommendation to make that happen.

We can only recommend that you do. 2.9.22 has known security issues, please
see http://doc.powerdns.com/html/powerdns-advisory-2012-01.html

You would need to run at least

The effects are hard to predict, depending on where you got your 2.9.22
binaries. If static, they might have issues with your very much newer

If dynamic, you might get a binary that doesn't start anymore.

We would really recommend upgrading to a version of PowerDNS Authoritative
Server that is current.
