Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.54128
Category:SuSE Local Security Checks
Title:SuSE Security Advisory SUSE-SA:2002:044 (bind8)
Summary:SuSE Security Advisory SUSE-SA:2002:044 (bind8)
Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory SUSE-SA:2002:044.

The security research company ISS (Internet Security Services)
has discovered several vulnerabilities in the BIND8 name server,
including a remotely exploitable buffer overflow.

The advisories by ISS and ISC mention the following problems
in detail:

1. There is a buffer overflow in the way named handles
SIG records. This buffer overflow can be exploited to
obtain access to the victim host under the account
the named process is running with.

In order to exploit this problem, the attacker must
control an existing DNS domain, and must be allowed
to perform a recursive query.

The impact of this vulnerability is serious.

2. There are several Denial Of Service problems in BIND8
that allow remote attackers to terminate the name server
process.

At least one of these vulnerabilities seems to be exploitable.

Solution:
Update your system with the packages as indicated in
the referenced security advisory.
