Description


Updated bind97 packages that fix one security issue are now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

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.

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 found in the way BIND handled certain combinations of resource
records. A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause a recursive
resolver, or an authoritative server in certain configurations, to lockup.
(CVE-2012-5166)

Users of bind97 are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
correct this issue. After installing the update, the BIND daemon (named)
will be restarted automatically.
