Why you should not hide version.bind?
This article has suggested a way of hiding version.bind string. From a security perceive, this is an overkill and can usually be harmful:
- While it’s true that you can hide version.bind, the fact that version.bind is can be queried reveals that you are running BIND. It makes little sense to fake a version.
- The need of hiding information, which is unnecessarily hidden like this, means that the system administrator is neglecting security.
- Therefore, FOREACH(version.bind is queriable and is hidden) HACKEM :-)
Security can NOT be built on what others are not aware of.
