SuSE9 Security Update : bind (YOU Patch Number 12197)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 41221
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.

Synopsis

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

Description

The transaction id and the udp source port used for DNS queries by the bind nameserver were predictable. Attackers could potentially exploit that weakness to manipulate the DNS cache ('DNS cache poisoning', CVE-2008-1447).

Additionally the root.hint zone file was updated to contain the new IP number of the 'L' root DNS server.

Solution

Apply YOU patch number 12197.
