openSUSE Security Update : bind (openSUSE-SU-2010:1031-1)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 53698
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 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.
