3. Description:

The Berkeley Internet Name Domain (BIND) is an implementation of the Domain
Name System (DNS) protocols. BIND includes a DNS server (named); a resolver
library (routines for applications to use when interfacing with DNS); and
tools for verifying that the DNS server is operating correctly. DNS64 is
used to automatically generate DNS records so IPv6 based clients can access
IPv4 systems through a NAT64 server.

A flaw was found in the DNS64 implementation in BIND. If a remote attacker
sent a specially-crafted query to a named server, named could exit
unexpectedly with an assertion failure. Note that DNS64 support is not
enabled by default. (CVE-2012-5688)

Users of bind are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
correct this issue. After installing the update, the BIND daemon (named)
will be restarted automatically.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/articles/11258

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

883533 - CVE-2012-5688 bind: DoS on servers using DNS64
