Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description

Maxim Shudrak discovered that Bind incorrectly handled certain malformed rdata. A remote attacker could use this flaw with a specially crafted query to cause Bind to stop responding, resulting in a denial of service.

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

Solution

Update the affected packages.
