Fedora 18 : bind-9.9.1-10.P3.fc18 (2012-13922)

High Nessus Plugin ID 62227


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Update to the 9.9.1-P3 security release. This update also fixes following issues :

- bind now uses systemd-rpm macros for starting/restarting of the named daemon. (BZ#850045)

- the NetworkManager dispatcher script contained wrong path to systemcl utility. (BZ#837173)

- named-chroot.service systemd unit didn't work.

- bind-devel package wasn't multilib clean. (BZ#478718)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected bind package.
