Bind: http://www.solucorp.qc.ca/howto.hc?projet=vserver&id=72

I'd like to run bind in an vserver. I think its better to do that than
running bind in chroot on main server. Also i'm going to limit bind via
Systrace and start named as unpriviliged user in chroot (and my
configuration disallows zone transfers and so on ,-)

I'm just an PHP, MySQL ... coder so i'm also not sure about the
Risks of: CAP_NET_RAW capability

    * Allow use of RAW sockets
    * Allow use of PACKET sockets

in use on customer vservers. Why is that cap deactivated in default?
Which risks comes with that cap?

Thanks for your time!

with regards,
Michael Hilscher
