Fedora 9 : nsd-3.2.2-1.fc9 (2009-5190)
High Nessus Plugin ID 38836
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionSecurity release. A one-byte overflow bug allows a carefully crafted exploit to bring down your DNS server. It is highly unlikely that this one byte overflow can lead to other (system) exploits.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected nsd package.
