openSUSE 10 Security Update : bind (bind-4931)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 31449

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.9

Synopsis

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

Certain input data could trigger a buffer overflow in the 'inet_network' function of libbind. Applications that use this function could therefore potentially be crashed or exploited to execute arbitrary code. Bind itself is not affected though (CVE-2008-0122).

Solution

Update the affected bind packages.
