Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2011:0845
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)
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.

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

Risk factor : Medium
