Bind/Thunderbird Updates for Slackware
Posted on: 07/09/2011 10:31 AM

Updated Bind and Thunderbird packages are available for Slackware Linux

[slackware-security] bind (SSA:2011-189-01)
New bind packages are available for Slackware 13.37, and -current to
fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 13.37 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/bind-9.7.3_P3-i486-1_slack13.37.txz: Upgraded.
A specially constructed packet will cause BIND 9 ("named") to exit,
affecting DNS service. The issue exists in BIND 9.6.3 and newer.
"Change #2912 (see CHANGES) exposed a latent bug in the DNS message
processing code that could allow certain UPDATE requests to crash
named. This was fixed by disambiguating internal database
representation vs DNS wire format data. [RT #24777] [CVE-2011-2464]"

(* Security fix *)
