SUSE SLES11 Security Update : bind (SUSE-SU-2017:1000-1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 99358

Synopsis

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

Description

This update for bind fixes the following security issues:
CVE-2017-3137 (bsc#1033467): Mistaken assumptions about the ordering of records in the answer section of a response containing CNAME or DNAME resource records could have been exploited to cause a denial of service of a bind server performing recursion. CVE-2017-3136 (bsc#1033466): An attacker could have constructed a query that would cause a denial of service of servers configured to use DNS64.
CVE-2017-3138 (bsc#1033468): An attacker with access to the BIND control channel could have caused the server to stop by triggering an assertion failure. CVE-2016-6170 (bsc#987866): Primary DNS servers could have caused a denial of service of secondary DNS servers via a large AXFR response. IXFR servers could have caused a denial of service of IXFR clients via a large IXFR response. Remote authenticated users could have caused a denial of service of primary DNS servers via a large UPDATE message. CVE-2016-2775 (bsc#989528):
When lwresd or the named lwres option were enabled, bind allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) via a long request that uses the lightweight resolver protocol.

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.
