Scientific Linux Security Update : bind on SL6.x i386/x86_64
High Nessus Plugin ID 85190
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA flaw was found in the way BIND performed DNSSEC validation. An attacker able to make BIND (functioning as a DNS resolver with DNSSEC validation enabled) resolve a name in an attacker-controlled domain could cause named to exit unexpectedly with an assertion failure.
After installing the update, the BIND daemon (named) will be restarted automatically.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
