Red Hat Security Advisory

 

Synopsis: Important: bind97 security update

Advisory ID: RHSA-2013:1115-01

Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux

Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2013-1115.html

Issue date: 2013-07-30

CVE Names: CVE-2013-4854

=====================================================================

 

1. Summary:

 

Updated bind97 packages that fix one security issue are now available for

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

 

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having

important security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)

base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the

CVE link in the References section.

 

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

 

RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64

Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server) - i386, ia64, ppc, s390x, x86_64

 

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.

 

A denial of service flaw was found in BIND. A remote attacker could use

this flaw to send a specially-crafted DNS query to named that, when

processed, would cause named to crash when rejecting the malformed query.

(CVE-2013-4854)

 

All bind97 users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which

contain a backported patch to 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.

 

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to

use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at

https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/articles/11258

 

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

 

988999 - CVE-2013-4854 bind: named crash with an assertion failure on parsing malformed rdata
