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.

SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201206-01 (BIND: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in BIND. Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
The vulnerabilities allow remote attackers to cause a Denial of Service (daemon crash) via a DNS query, to bypass intended access restrictions, to incorrectly cache a ncache entry and a rrsig for the same type and to incorrectly mark zone data as insecure.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll bind users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=net-dns/bind-9.7.4_p1' NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are available since December 22, 2011. It is likely that your system is already no longer affected by this issue.
