FreeBSD : dns/bind9* -- Several vulnerabilities (53a0ddef-0208-11e2-8afa-0024e830109b)

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

Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related

Description :

ISC reports :

Prevents a crash when queried for a record whose RDATA exceeds 65535

Prevents a crash when validating caused by using 'Bad cache' data
before it has been initialized.

ISC_QUEUE handling for recursive clients was updated to address a race
condition that could cause a memory leak. This rarely occurred with
UDP clients, but could be a significant problem for a server handling
a steady rate of TCP queries.

A condition has been corrected where improper handling of zero-length
RDATA could cause undesirable behavior, including termination of the
named process.
