Scientific Linux Security Update : bind on SL5.x, SL4.x, SL3.x i386/x86_64

This script is Copyright (C) 2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

A flaw was found in the way BIND generates outbound DNS query ids. If
an attacker is able to acquire a finite set of query IDs, it becomes
possible to accurately predict future query IDs. Future query ID
prediction may allow an attacker to conduct a DNS cache poisoning
attack, which can result in the DNS server returning incorrect client
query data. (CVE-2007-2926)
