|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.
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 denial of service flaw was found in the way BIND handled queries for
NSEC3-signed zones. A remote attacker could use this flaw against an
authoritative name server that served NCES3-signed zones by sending a
specially crafted query, which, when processed, would cause named to crash.
All bind users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to correct this issue. After installing the
update, the BIND daemon (named) will be restarted automatically.
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.
