SuSE 11.3 Security Update : bind (SAT Patch Number 10100)
High Nessus Plugin ID 80389
SynopsisThe remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.
Descriptionbind has been updated to version 9.9.6P1, fixing the following security issue :
- A flaw in delegation handling could be exploited to put named into an infinite loop. This has been addressed by placing limits on the number of levels of recursion named will allow (default 7), and the number of iterative queries that it will send (default 50) before terminating a recursive query. (CVE-2014-8500, bnc#908994)
- The recursion depth limit is configured via the 'max-recursion-depth' option, and the query limit via the 'max-recursion-queries' option. Additionally, two non-security issues have been fixed :
- Fix a multi-thread issue with IXFR. (bnc#882511)
- Fix handling of TXT records in ldapdump. (bnc#743758)
