The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in bind :
The RFC 5011 implementation in rdata.c in ISC BIND 9.7.x and 9.8.x
before 9.8.5-P2, 9.8.6b1, 9.9.x before 9.9.3-P2, and 9.9.4b1, and
DNSco BIND 9.9.3-S1 before 9.9.3-S1-P1 and 9.9.4-S1b1, allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) via a query with
a malformed RDATA section that is not properly handled during
construction of a log message, as exploited in the wild in July 2013
The updated packages for Enterprise Server 5 have been patched to
correct this issue.
The updated packages for Business Server 1 have been upgraded to the
9.9.3-P2 version which is not vulnerable to this issue.
