This script is Copyright (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

This update for bind fixes the following issues :

- An attacker with the ability to send and receive
messages to an authoritative DNS server was able to
circumvent TSIG authentication of AXFR requests. A
server that relied solely on TSIG keys for protection
could be manipulated into (1) providing an AXFR of a
zone to an unauthorized recipient and (2) accepting
bogus Notify packets. [bsc#1046554, CVE-2017-3142]

- An attacker who with the ability to send and receive
messages to an authoritative DNS server and who had
knowledge of a valid TSIG key name for the zone and
service being targeted was able to manipulate BIND into
accepting an unauthorized dynamic update. [bsc#1046555,

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable
