Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : bind (MDKSA-2002:043)

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

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
libraries.

Solution :

Update the affected bind, bind-devel and / or bind-utils packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
