Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : bind (MDVSA-2009:002)

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

A flaw was found in how BIND checked the return value of the OpenSSL
DSA_do_verify() function. On systems that use DNSSEC, a malicious zone
could present a malformed DSA certificate and bypass proper
certificate validation, which would allow for spoofing attacks
(CVE-2009-0025).

The updated packages have been patched to prevent this issue.

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
