High Nessus Plugin ID 80019
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA denial of service flaw was found in the way BIND followed DNS delegations. A remote attacker could use a specially crafted zone containing a large number of referrals which, when looked up and processed, would cause named to use excessive amounts of memory or crash. (CVE-2014-8500)
After installing the update, the BIND daemon (named) will be restarted automatically.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
