MDKA-2007:090 : bind

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2011 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake host is missing one or more security-related

Description :

A number of bugs in the BIND9 packages are fixed in this update:

Threading was disabled in the ISC BIND package shipped with Mandriva
Linux 2007 and Corporate Server 4, because the host command did not
work properly with threading enabled. This update only builds the
host command without threading, while the rest of the bind server is
once again SMP-aware.

The bogon ACL was too restrictive and accidentally contained IP
address ranges for some root server networks.

The named daemon is chrooted by default, but logrotate files were
being supplied that served no purpose as named performs it's own log
rotating. The spurious logrotate files have been removed.

The updated packages correct these issues.
