Synopsis: Important: bind security and bug fix update Issue Date: 2013-03-28 CVE Numbers: CVE-2013-2266 -- A denial of service flaw was found in the libdns library. A remote attacker could use this flaw to send a specially-crafted DNS query to named that, when processed, would cause named to use an excessive amount of memory, or possibly crash. (CVE-2013-2266) Note: This update disables the syntax checking of NAPTR (Naming Authority Pointer) resource records. This update also fixes the following bug: * Previously, rebuilding the bind-dyndb-ldap source RPM failed with a "/usr/include/dns/view.h:76:21: error: dns/rrl.h: No such file or directory" error. After installing the update, the BIND daemon (named) will be restarted automatically. -- SL6 x86_64 bind-debuginfo-9.8.2-0.17.rc1.el6_4.4.i686.rpm bind-debuginfo-9.8.2-0.17.rc1.el6_4.4.x86_64.rpm bind-libs-9.8.2-0.17.rc1.el6_4.4.i686.rpm bind-libs-9.8.2-0.17.rc1.el6_4.4.x86_64.rpm bind-utils-9.8.2-0.17.rc1.el6_4.4.x86_64.rpm bind-9.8.2-0.17.rc1.el6_4.4.x86_64.rpm bind-chroot-9.8.2-0.17.rc1.el6_4.4.x86_64.rpm bind-devel-9.8.2-0.17.rc1.el6_4.4.i686.rpm bind-devel-9.8.2-0.17.rc1.el6_4.4.x86_64.rpm bind-sdb-9.8.2-0.17.rc1.el6_4.4.x86_64.rpm i386 bind-debuginfo-9.8.2-0.17.rc1.el6_4.4.i686.rpm bind-libs-9.8.2-0.17.rc1.el6_4.4.i686.rpm bind-utils-9.8.2-0.17.rc1.el6_4.4.i686.rpm bind-9.8.2-0.17.rc1.el6_4.4.i686.rpm bind-chroot-9.8.2-0.17.rc1.el6_4.4.i686.rpm bind-devel-9.8.2-0.17.rc1.el6_4.4.i686.rpm bind-sdb-9.8.2-0.17.rc1.el6_4.4.i686.rpm - Scientific Linux Development Team
