Amazon Linux AMI : bind (ALAS-2014-287)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 72305

Synopsis

The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.

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)

Solution

Run 'yum update bind' to update your system.
