New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.2

Synopsis

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

Adding certain types of signed negative responses to cache doesn't clear any matching RRSIG records already in cache. A subsequent lookup of the cached data can cause named to crash (CVE-2010-3613).

bind did not properly determine the security status of an NS RRset during a DNSKEY algorithm rollover, which might allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (DNSSEC validation error) by triggering a rollover (CVE-2010-3614).

Solution

Update the affected bind packages.
