Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : bind (MDVSA-2014:002)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 72018


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


A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in ISC BIND :

The query_findclosestnsec3 function in query.c in named in ISC BIND 9.6, 9.7, and 9.8 before 9.8.6-P2 and 9.9 before 9.9.4-P2, and 9.6-ESV before 9.6-ESV-R10-P2, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (INSIST assertion failure and daemon exit) via a crafted DNS query to an authoritative nameserver that uses the NSEC3 signing feature (CVE-2014-0591).

The updated packages for Enterprise Server 5 have been patched to correct this issue.

The updated packages for Business Server 1 have been upgraded to the 9.9.4-P2 version which is unaffected by this issue.


Update the affected packages.
