Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : bind (MDVSA-2009:037)

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Internet Systems Consortium (ISC) BIND 9.6.0 and earlier does not
properly check the return value from the OpenSSL EVP_VerifyFinal
function, which allows remote attackers to bypass validation of the
certificate chain via a malformed SSL/TLS signature, a similar
vulnerability to CVE-2008-5077 and CVE-2009-0025.

In this particular case the DSA_verify function was fixed with
MDVSA-2009:002, this update does however address the RSA_verify
function (CVE-2009-0265).

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N)
CVSS Temporal Score : 4.3
(CVSS2#E:ND/RL:OF/RC:C)
Public Exploit Available : true
