I guess is their BIND update in response to the recent DNS exploit. If you use BIND (and most probably don't) its pretty important to get it quickly.

I bookmarked the DNS-OARC test at the bottom. That said, I use OpenDNS for my nameservers. I don't trust AT&T to jump on these issues fast enough.

AT&T was one of the big ISPs to be apparently reacting very slowly to the problem.

I switched to OpenDNS about a year ago. My Verizon name servers were very problematic and slow.
