Red Hat: Updated bind and bind97 packages fix one security issue

The Berkeley Internet Name Domain (BIND) is an implementation of the Domain Name System (DNS) protocols. An off-by-one flaw was found in the way BIND processed negative responses with large resource record sets (RRSets). An attacker able to send recursive queries to a BIND server that is configured as a caching resolver could use this flaw to cause named to exit with an assertion failure. Updated packages are available from ftp.redhat.com.

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.

An off-by-one flaw was found in the way BIND processed negative responses
with large resource record sets (RRSets). An attacker able to send
recursive queries to a BIND server that is configured as a caching
resolver could use this flaw to cause named to exit with an assertion
failure. (CVE-2011-1910)

All BIND users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
resolve 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/kb/docs/DOC-11259

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