SuSE 11 Security Update : bind (SAT Patch Number 1844)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 44311


The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.


When bind is configured for DNSSEC it 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). All these bugs have been fixed.


Apply SAT patch number 1844.
