                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
________________________________________________________________________

Package name:           bind
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2002:001
Date:                   January 8th, 2002
Affected versions:      8.0, 8.1
________________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 There are some insecure permissions on configuration files and 
 executables with the bind 9.x packages shipped with Mandrake Linux 8.0
 and 8.1.  This update provides stricter permissions by making the 
 /etc/rndc.conf and /etc/rndc.key files read/write by the named user and
 by making /sbin/rndc-confgen and /sbin/rndc read/write/executable only
 by root.

FTP mirrors can be obtained from:

Please verify the update prior to upgrading to ensure the integrity of
the downloaded package.  You can do this with the command:

  rpm --checksig
