CONECTIVA LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT 
- -------------------------------------------------------------------------- 


PACKAGE : bind 
SUMMARY : Denial of Service vulnerability 
DATE : 2002-06-06 15:01:00 
ID : CLA-2002:494 
RELEVANT 
RELEASES : 7.0, 8 


- ------------------------------------------------------------------------- 


DESCRIPTION 
 "bind" is a name server (DNS) developed by the ISC and used in many 
 internet and intranet sites. 
  
 ISC (Internet Software Consortium) reported a remote denial of 
 service vulnerability[2] in the BIND[1] server. A remote attacker can 
 exploit this problem and shut down the name server. 
  
 This vulnerability only affects the 9.x versions of the server and 
 has no other consequence besides shutting down the service. 
  
 An indication that the service has been shut down due to this problem 
 are the following messages in the system log (/var/log/messages): 
  
 named: message.c:808: REQUIRE(*rdataset == ((void *)0)) failed 
 named: exiting (due to assertion failure) 
  
 Please note that regular DNS traffic could also accidentally trigger 
 this problem. 
  
 ISC has released BIND version 9.2.1 to address this vulnerability. 



SOLUTION 
 It is recommended that all bind users upgrade their packages. The 
 "named" service will be automatically restarted if it was already 
 running before the upgrade.
