The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
A buffer overflow vulnerability exists in different implementations of
the DNS resolver libraries. A remote attacker able to sent malicious
DNS responses could potentially exploit this vulnerability to execute
arbitrary code or cause a DoS (Denial of Service) on a vulnerable
system. The named daemon itself is not vulnerable to this problem, but
this latest version of bind 8 includes fixes to the DNS resolver
Update the affected bind, bind-devel and / or bind-utils packages.
