Description

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

This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

[Updated 29th July 2009] The packages in this erratum have been updated to also correct this issue in the bind-sdb package.

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 handles dynamic update message packets containing the 'ANY' record type. A remote attacker could use this flaw to send a specially crafted dynamic update packet that could cause named to exit with an assertion failure. (CVE-2009-0696)

Note: even if named is not configured for dynamic updates, receiving such a specially crafted dynamic update packet could still cause named to exit unexpectedly.

All BIND users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to resolve this issue. After installing the update, the BIND daemon (named) will be restarted automatically.
