Debian DLA-1255-1 : bind9 security update
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 106211
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionJayachandran Palanisamy of Cygate AB reported that BIND, a DNS server implementation, was improperly sequencing cleanup operations, leading in some cases to a use-after-free error, triggering an assertion failure and crash in named.
For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 1:9.8.4.dfsg.P1-6+nmu2+deb7u19.
We recommend that you upgrade your bind9 packages.
