Mandrake A vulnerability exists with the bind nameserver dealing with compressed zone transfers.

________________________________________________________________________

                Linux-Mandrake Security Update Advisory
________________________________________________________________________

Package name:           bind
Date:                   November 10th, 2000
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2000:067

Affected versions:      6.0, 6.1, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2
________________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 A vulnerability exists with the bind nameserver dealing with compressed
 zone transfers.  This vulnerability can be exploited by authorized zone
 transfers and used in a DoS attack.  The named daemon will crash if it
 receives this type of zone transfer from an authorized source address.
 The crash is not necessarily immediate, but can range from a few
 seconds to a few minutes from the time of the attack.

 This new version of bind also fixes a bug in the handling of the
 compression pointer tables which can result in the nameserver entering
 an infinite loop.  This bug has been known to occur in the standard
 processing of SRV records used with Windows 2000 Active Directory.

 All Linux-Mandrake users are encouraged to upgrade bind immediately.
________________________________________________________________________

Please verify these md5 checksums of the updates prior to upgrading to
ensure the integrity of the downloaded package.  You can do this by
running the md5sum program on the downloaded package by using
"md5sum package.rpm".

To upgrade automatically, use « MandrakeUpdate ».  

If you want to upgrade manually, download the updated package from one 
of our FTP server mirrors and uprade with "rpm -Fvh *.rpm".  

You can download the updates directly from one of the mirror sites
listed at:

   http://www.linux-mandrake.com/en/ftp.php3.  

Updated packages are available in the "updates/[ver]/RPMS/" directory.  
For example, if you are looking for an updated RPM package for
Linux-Mandrake 7.2, look for it in "updates/7.2/RPMS/".  Updated source
RPMs are available as well, but you generally do not need to download
them.

Please be aware that sometimes it takes the mirrors a few hours to 
update, so if you want an immediate upgrade, please use one of the two 
above-listed mirrors.
