Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : bind (MDKSA-2007:149)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 25795
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


The DNS query id generation code in BIND9 is vulnerable to cryptographic analysis which provides a 1-in-8 change of guessing the next query ID for 50% of the query IDs, which could be used by a remote attacker to perform cache poisoning by an attacker (CVE-2007-2926).

As well, in BIND9 9.4.x, the default ACLs were note being correctly set, which could allow anyone to make recursive queries and/or query the cache contents (CVE-2007-2925).

This update provides packages which are patched to prevent these issues.


Update the affected bind, bind-devel and / or bind-utils packages.
