SuSE9 Security Update : bind (YOU Patch Number 12060)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 41191


The remote SuSE 9 host is missing a security-related patch.


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.


Apply YOU patch number 12060.
