SUSE SLES12 Security Update : bind (SUSE-SU-2017:0113-1)

This script is Copyright (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

This update for bind fixes the following issues :

- Fix a potential assertion failure that could have been
triggered by a malformed response to an ANY query,
thereby facilitating a denial-of-service attack.
[CVE-2016-9131, bsc#1018700, bsc#1018699]

- Fix a potential assertion failure that could have been
triggered by responding to a query with inconsistent
DNSSEC information, thereby facilitating a
denial-of-service attack. [CVE-2016-9147, bsc#1018701,
bsc#1018699]

- Fix potential assertion failure that could have been
triggered by DNS responses that contain unusually-formed
DS resource records, facilitating a denial-of-service
attack. [CVE-2016-9444, bsc#1018702, bsc#1018699]

- Fixed ldapdump to use a temporary pseudo nameserver that
conforms to BIND's expected syntax. Prior versions would
not work correctly with an LDAP backed DNS server.
[bsc#965748]

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.
