i doubt it. i, completely coincidentally, heard about binfo five days
binfo.c = Bind Version Checker
'binfo' is a quick little script to pull back the version
of named running on a remote nameserver. This is handy
comparing it to a list of known vulnerable versions of
named/bind. Previous to this, it took a few commands to
extract out the version.
it also tries to determine if the given server supports iquery.
