3. Description:

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. DNS64 is
used to automatically generate DNS records so IPv6 based clients can access
IPv4 systems through a NAT64 server.

A flaw was found in the DNS64 implementation in BIND. If a remote attacker
sent a specially-crafted query to a named server, named could exit
unexpectedly with an assertion failure. Note that DNS64 support is not
enabled by default. (CVE-2012-5688)

Users of bind are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
correct this issue. After installing the update, the BIND daemon (named)
will be restarted automatically.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.
