Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
A vulnerability has been reported in ISC BIND, which potentially can be exploited by malicious people to conduct spoofing attacks.

Pardus Linux Security Advisory 2009-05  
      Date: 2009-01-14
  Severity: 3
      Type: Remote


A vulnerability has been reported in ISC BIND, which potentially can be 
exploited by malicious people to conduct spoofing attacks. 


The vulnerability is caused due  to  certain  ISC  BIND  functions  not 
correctly verifying the return value of the OpenSSL "EVP_VerifyFinal()" 
and "DSA_do_verify()" functions when validating the signature of DSA and
NSEC3DSA keys. This may be exploited to e.g. send spoofed responses from
zones using DSA or NSEC3DSA keys. 

Affected packages:

  Pardus 2008:
    bind, all before 9.4.3_p1-20-6
    bind-tools, all before 9.4.3_p1-20-6

  Pardus 2007:
    bind, all before 9.4.3_p1-20-11
    bind-tools, all before 9.4.3_p1-20-16


There are update(s) for bind,  bind-tools.  You  can  update  them  via 
Package Manager or with a single command from console: 

  Pardus 2008:
    pisi up bind bind-tools

  Pardus 2007:
    pisi up bind bind-tools
