Title:RedHat Update for bind97 RHSA-2012:1364-01
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'bind97'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
Description:Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'bind97'
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 found in the way BIND handled certain combinations of resource
records. A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause a recursive
resolver, or an authoritative server in certain configurations, to lockup.
(CVE-2012-5166)

Users of bind97 are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
correct this issue. After installing the update, the BIND daemon (named)
will be restarted automatically.

Affected Software/OS:
bind97 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)

Solution:
Please Install the Updated Packages.
