DNS Daemon [bind]

Hi! There is a security problem with some versions of the name daemon, in some cases this daemon gives root access to someone which uses an exploit remotely. To avoid such things you must start bind in a sandbox, chrooted, or as a user which does not have high priviledhes in the system. so, the command line becomes [for most systems]:
# named -u daemon
For a FreeBSD machine the command line is
# named -u bind -g bind if you changed /etc/rc.conf and have specified named_flags="-u bind -g bind" and if you have specified to start the named at boot time with the following line in /etc/rc.conf: named_enable="YES", and in the /etc/named.conf you should specify that the directory is /etc/namedb.
