New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

SynopsisThe remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis update for bind fixes the following 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.
One additional non-security bug was fixed :
The default umask was changed to 077. (bsc#1020983)
This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-12-SP1:Update update project.
