Updated bind packages fix security vulnerabilitiesPublication date: 08 Sep 2015
Affected Mageia releases : 4 , 5
CVE: CVE-2015-5722 , CVE-2015-5986
Updated bind packages fix security vulnerability: Parsing a malformed DNSSEC key can cause a validating resolver to exit due to a failed assertion in buffer.c. It is possible for a remote attacker to deliberately trigger this condition, for example by using a query which requires a response from a zone containing a deliberately malformed key (CVE-2015-5722). An incorrect boundary check in openpgpkey_61.c can cause named to terminate due to a REQUIRE assertion failure. This defect can be deliberately exploited by an attacker who can provide a maliciously constructed response in answer to a query (CVE-2015-5986).
