Fedora 17 : bind-9.9.1-9.P3.fc17 (2012-14106)

High Nessus Plugin ID 62228


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


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

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

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

- 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.
