Fedora and EPEL releases are not vulnerable. Builds will be made today of
3.2.13. You should however, upgrade to 3.2.12 if you haven't yet. Since
the official feedback has not reached the treshhold yet, you will need
to install these with "yum install nsd --enablerepos=updates-testing".

If you have installed 3.2.12 and not yet left feedback, please see:
