    I've got the following from

    WARNING: Name servers software versions are exposed: "9.8.4-rpz2+rl005.12-P1"

    Exposing name server's versions may be risky, when a new vulnerability is found your name servers may be automatically exploited by script kiddies until you patch the system.

    Is this something to be worried about, how to get rid of this warning?

    You can set version in /etc/bind/named.conf to something like "DNS server" or "use fpdns to get version number ;)". Afterwards restart bind.
