As a quick workaround any user of BIND 8 can hide the version-number of his named in the named.conf by adding

     version "Skript-Kiddies: go away!";

in the "options { }"-Section.

Though "dig" will give this result:
[user at ...1233...]:# dig @dns.ser.ver txt chaos version.bind | grep VERSION
VERSION.BIND.           0S CHAOS TXT    "Skript-Kiddies: go away!"

Or confuse diggers with a version like 9.5  =:^))))

This is only a fast help.
Don't forget to upgrade. ;)
