Debian DLA-696-1 : bind9 security update
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 94477
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionTony Finch and Marco Davids reported an assertion failure in BIND, a DNS server implementation, which causes the server process to terminate. This denial of service vulnerability is related to a defect in the processing of responses with DNAME records from authoritative servers and primarily affects recursive resolvers.
For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 1:9.8.4.dfsg.P1-6+nmu2+deb7u13.
We recommend that you upgrade your bind9 packages.
NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpgrade the affected packages.
