Title:RedHat Update for bind RHSA-2011:1458-01
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'bind'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
The remote host is missing an update for the 'bind'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
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.

A flaw was discovered in the way BIND handled certain DNS queries, which
caused it to cache an invalid record. A remote attacker could use this
flaw to send repeated queries for this invalid record, causing the
resolvers to exit unexpectedly due to a failed assertion. (CVE-2011-4313)

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

Affected Software/OS:
bind on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)

Please Install the Updated Packages.
