Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.69781
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2011:0845
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2011:0845.

The Berkeley Internet Name Domain (BIND) is an implementation of the Domain
Name System (DNS) protocols. BIND includes a DNS server (named)
a resolver
library (routines for applications to use when interfacing with DNS)
and
tools for verifying that the DNS server is operating correctly.

An off-by-one flaw was found in the way BIND processed negative responses
with large resource record sets (RRSets). An attacker able to send
recursive queries to a BIND server that is configured as a caching
resolver could use this flaw to cause named to exit with an assertion
failure. (CVE-2011-1910)

All BIND users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
resolve this issue. After installing the update, the BIND daemon (named)
will be restarted automatically.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
