Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201209-04 (BIND: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in BIND:
  Domain names are not properly revoked due to an error in the cache         update policy (CVE-2012-1033).
  BIND accepts records with zero-length RDATA fields (CVE-2012-1667).
  An assertion failure from the failing-query cache could occur when         DNSSEC validation is enabled (CVE-2012-3817).
  A memory leak may occur under high TCP query loads (CVE-2012-3868).
  An assertion error can occur when a query is performed for a record         with RDATA greater than 65535 bytes (CVE-2012-4244).

Impact :

A remote attacker may be able to cause a Denial of Service condition or       keep domain names resolvable after it has been deleted from registration.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
