Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Update for bind RHSA-2012:1549-01
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. DNS64 is
used to automatically generate DNS records so IPv6 based clients can access
IPv4 systems through a NAT64 server.

A flaw was found in the DNS64 implementation in BIND. If a remote attacker
sent a specially-crafted query to a named server, named could exit
unexpectedly with an assertion failure. Note that DNS64 support is not
enabled by default. (CVE-2012-5688)

Users of bind 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:
bind on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Please Install the Updated Packages.
