SuSE9 Security Update : bind (YOU Patch Number 12197)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 41221
SynopsisThe remote SuSE 9 host is missing a security-related patch.
DescriptionThe 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.
