High Nessus Plugin ID 85211
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA flaw was found in the way BIND handled requests for TKEY DNS resource records. A remote attacker could use this flaw to make named (functioning as an authoritative DNS server or a DNS resolver) exit unexpectedly with an assertion failure via a specially crafted DNS request packet. (CVE-2015-5477)
After installing the update, the BIND daemon (named) will be restarted automatically.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
