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

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 53698


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


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).


Update the affected bind packages.
