Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : bind (MDKSA-2002:001)
High Nessus Plugin ID 13909
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionThere are some insecure permissions on configuration files and executables with the bind 9.x packages shipped with Mandrake Linux 8.0 and 8.1. This update provides stricter permissions by making the /etc/rndc.conf and /etc/rndc.key files read/write by the named user and by making /sbin/rndc-confgen and /sbin/rndc read/write/executable only by root.
SolutionUpdate the affected bind, bind-devel and / or bind-utils packages.
