openSUSE Security Update : bind (bind-1845)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 44307


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


bind when configured for DNSSEC could incorrectly cache NXDOMAIN responses (CVE-2010-0097). Moreover, the fix for CVE-2009-4022 was incomplete. Despite the previous fix CNAME and DNAME responses could be incorrectly cached (CVE-2010-0290).


Update the affected bind packages.
