SUSE SLES10 Security Update : bind (SUSE-SU-2015:1322-1)

High Nessus Plugin ID 85179


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


bind was updated to fix one security issue :

CVE-2015-5477: Remote Denial-of-Service via TKEY queries. (bsc#939567)

Exposure to this issue can not be prevented by either ACLs or configuration options limiting or denying service because the exploitable code occurs early in the packet handling.

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.
