Debian DLA-1542-1 : dnsruby update

High Nessus Plugin ID 118070


The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


dnsruby is a feature-complete DNS(SEC) client for Ruby. It ships the
DNS Root Key Signing Key (KSK), used as trust anchor to validate the
authenticity of DNS records. This update includes the latest KSK
(KSK-2017), that will be used by ICANN to sign the Root Zone today, 11
October 2018.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', this problem has been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your dnsruby packages.

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


Upgrade the affected ruby-dnsruby package.
