Scientific Linux Security Update : bind on SL6.x i386/x86_64

Low Nessus Plugin ID 72084

Synopsis

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

Description

A denial of service flaw was found in the way BIND handled queries for NSEC3-signed zones. A remote attacker could use this flaw against an authoritative name server that served NCES3-signed zones by sending a specially crafted query, which, when processed, would cause named to crash. (CVE-2014-0591)

After installing the update, the BIND daemon (named) will be restarted automatically.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
