FreeBSD : dns/bind9* -- Several vulnerabilities (53a0ddef-0208-11e2-8afa-0024e830109b)
High Nessus Plugin ID 62194
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.
DescriptionISC reports :
Prevents a crash when queried for a record whose RDATA exceeds 65535 bytes.
Prevents a crash when validating caused by using 'Bad cache' data before it has been initialized.
ISC_QUEUE handling for recursive clients was updated to address a race condition that could cause a memory leak. This rarely occurred with UDP clients, but could be a significant problem for a server handling a steady rate of TCP queries.
A condition has been corrected where improper handling of zero-length RDATA could cause undesirable behavior, including termination of the named process.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
