Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : bind (MDVSA-2010:021)

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

Some vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in bind :

The original fix for CVE-2009-4022 was found to be incomplete. BIND
was incorrectly caching certain responses without performing proper
DNSSEC validation. CNAME and DNAME records could be cached, without
proper DNSSEC validation, when received from processing recursive
client queries that requested DNSSEC records but indicated that
checking should be disabled. A remote attacker could use this flaw to
bypass the DNSSEC validation check and perform a cache poisoning
attack if the target BIND server was receiving such client queries

There was an error in the DNSSEC NSEC/NSEC3 validation code that could
cause bogus NXDOMAIN responses (that is, NXDOMAIN responses for
records proven by NSEC or NSEC3 to exist) to be cached as if they had
validated correctly, so that future queries to the resolver would
return the bogus NXDOMAIN with the AD flag set (CVE-2010-0097).

ISC BIND 9.0.x through 9.3.x, 9.4 before 9.4.3-P5, 9.5 before
9.5.2-P2, 9.6 before 9.6.1-P3, and 9.7.0 beta handles out-of-bailiwick
data accompanying a secure response without re-fetching from the
original source, which allows remote attackers to have an unspecified
impact via a crafted response, aka Bug 20819. NOTE: this vulnerability
exists because of a regression during the fix for CVE-2009-4022

Packages for 2008.0 are provided for Corporate Desktop 2008.0

Additionally BIND has been upgraded to the latest patch release
