 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2012:177
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Affected: 2011.
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability was discovered and corrected in bind:
 
 BIND 9 nameservers using the DNS64 IPv6 transition mechanism are
 vulnerable to a software defect that allows a crafted query to crash
 the server with a REQUIRE assertion failure.  Remote exploitation
 of this defect can be achieved without extensive effort, resulting
 in a denial-of-service (DoS) vector against affected servers
 (CVE-2012-5688).
 
 The updated packages have been upgraded to bind 9.8.4-P1 which is
 not vulnerable to this issue.
