    So that major DNS security loophole has been talked about for a while now.

    It's considered a major issue.

    Why hasn't Apple released a patch for OS X Server?

    I would hope this would be on their **** list of things to fix.

    Your guess is as good as ours. From my readings a patch is on the way soon.

    Apple at the top still doesn't understand how to move swiftly to address security issues. As such the people doing the fixing are roadblocked by managers who argue about how a flaw will make the company look in the press. Welcme to corporate software where common sense isn't too common.

    They need to move quickly on this.

    The tech press has been all over it, and if they want anybody to take Mac OSX seriously as a "mission critical" production OS it needs a swift resolution.

    Thanks for the cordial replies so far! :D
