SUSE SLES10 Security Update : bind (SUSE-SU-2015:1322-1)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

bind was updated to fix one security issue :

CVE-2015-5477: Remote Denial-of-Service via TKEY queries. (bsc#939567)

Exposure to this issue can not be prevented by either ACLs or
configuration options limiting or denying service because the
exploitable code occurs early in the packet handling.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
