Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : bind (MDKSA-2007:149)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 25795
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionThe 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.
SolutionUpdate the affected bind, bind-devel and / or bind-utils packages.
