medium Nessus Plugin ID 60924
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 Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

It was discovered that named did not invalidate previously cached SIG records when adding an NCACHE record for the same entry to the cache.
A remote attacker allowed to send recursive DNS queries to named could use this flaw to crash named. (CVE-2010-3613)

After installing the update, the BIND daemon (named) will be restarted automatically.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
