Red Hat: Updated bind packages fix one security issue

The Berkeley Internet Name Domain (BIND) is an implementation of the Domain Name System (DNS) protocols. A flaw was discovered in the way BIND handled certain DNS queries, which caused it to cache an invalid record. A remote attacker could use this flaw to send repeated queries for this invalid record, causing the resolvers to exit unexpectedly due to a failed assertion. Updated packages are available from ftp.redhat.com.

=====================================================================

1. Summary:

Updated bind packages that fix one security issue are now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
important security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)
base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the
CVE link in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop version 4 - i386, x86_64

3. Description:

The Berkeley Internet Name Domain (BIND) is an implementation of the Domain
Name System (DNS) protocols. BIND includes a DNS server (named); a resolver
library (routines for applications to use when interfacing with DNS); and
tools for verifying that the DNS server is operating correctly.

A flaw was discovered in the way BIND handled certain DNS queries, which
caused it to cache an invalid record. A remote attacker could use this
flaw to send repeated queries for this invalid record, causing the
resolvers to exit unexpectedly due to a failed assertion. (CVE-2011-4313)

Users of bind are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
resolve this issue. After installing the update, the BIND daemon (named)
will be restarted automatically.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/kb/docs/DOC-11259

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

754398 - CVE-2011-4313 bind: Remote denial of service against recursive servers via logging negative cache entry
