Scientific Linux Security Update : bind on SL4.x i386/x86_64

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 60924


The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


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.


Update the affected packages.
