SUSE SLED12 / SLES12 Security Update : bind (SUSE-SU-2015:1204-1)

High Nessus Plugin ID 84632


The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.


bind was updated to fix two security issues.

These security issues were fixed :

- CVE-2015-1349: Named in ISC BIND 9.7.0 through 9.9.6 before 9.9.6-P2 and 9.10.x before 9.10.1-P2, when DNSSEC validation and the managed-keys feature are enabled, allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (assertion failure and daemon exit, or daemon crash) by triggering an incorrect trust-anchor management scenario in which no key is ready for use (bsc#918330).

- CVE-2015-4620: Fixed resolver crash when validating (bsc#936476).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
