Virtuozzo 7 : bind / bind-chroot / bind-devel / bind-libs / etc (VZLSA-2017-0276)

High Nessus Plugin ID 101423


The remote Virtuozzo host is missing a security update.


An update for bind is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

The Berkeley Internet Name Domain (BIND) is an implementation of the Domain Name System (DNS) protocols. BIND includes a DNS server (named); a resolver library (routines for applications to use when interfacing with DNS); and tools for verifying that the DNS server is operating correctly.

Security Fix(es) :

* A denial of service flaw was found in the way BIND handled query responses when both DNS64 and RPZ were used. A remote attacker could use this flaw to make named exit unexpectedly with an assertion failure or a NULL pointer dereference via a specially crafted DNS response. (CVE-2017-3135)

Red Hat would like to thank ISC for reporting this issue. Upstream acknowledges Ramesh Damodaran (Infoblox) and Aliaksandr Shubnik (Infoblox) as the original reporter.

Note that Tenable Network Security has attempted to extract the preceding description block directly from the corresponding Red Hat security advisory. Virtuozzo provides no description for VZLSA advisories. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected bind / bind-chroot / bind-devel / bind-libs / etc package.
