SUSE SLES11 Security Update : bind (SUSE-SU-2017:1000-1)

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 security issues:
CVE-2017-3137 (bsc#1033467): Mistaken assumptions about the ordering
of records in the answer section of a response containing CNAME or
DNAME resource records could have been exploited to cause a denial of
service of a bind server performing recursion. CVE-2017-3136
(bsc#1033466): An attacker could have constructed a query that would
cause a denial of service of servers configured to use DNS64.
CVE-2017-3138 (bsc#1033468): An attacker with access to the BIND
control channel could have caused the server to stop by triggering an
assertion failure. CVE-2016-6170 (bsc#987866): Primary DNS servers
could have caused a denial of service of secondary DNS servers via a
large AXFR response. IXFR servers could have caused a denial of
service of IXFR clients via a large IXFR response. Remote
authenticated users could have caused a denial of service of primary
DNS servers via a large UPDATE message. CVE-2016-2775 (bsc#989528):
When lwresd or the named lwres option were enabled, bind allowed
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) via a
long request that uses the lightweight resolver protocol.

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.
