openSUSE Security Update : bind (openSUSE-2015-494)

High Nessus Plugin ID 84816


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


bind was updated to fix three 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-2014-8500: ISC BIND 9.0.x through 9.8.x, 9.9.0 through 9.9.6, and 9.10.0 through 9.10.1 did not limit delegation chaining, which allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption and named crash) via a large or infinite number of referrals (bsc#908994).

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


Update the affected bind packages.
