openSUSE Security Update : bind (openSUSE-SU-2010:1031-1)

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

Adding certain types of signed negative responses to cache doesn't
clear any matching RRSIG records already in cache. A subsequent lookup
of the cached data can cause named to crash (CVE-2010-3613).

bind did not properly determine the security status of an NS RRset
during a DNSKEY algorithm rollover, which might allow remote attackers
to cause a denial of service (DNSSEC validation error) by triggering a
rollover (CVE-2010-3614).
