   SUSE Security Update: Security update for bind

Announcement ID:    SUSE-SU-2015:0480-1
Rating:             important
References:         #743758 #858639 #908994 
Cross-References:   CVE-2014-0591 CVE-2014-8500
Affected Products:
                    SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP1 LTSS

   An update that solves two vulnerabilities and has one
   errata is now available. It includes one version update.


   This bind updated fixes the following two security issues:


         A flaw in delegation handling could be exploited to put named into
   an infinite loop. This has been addressed by placing limits on the number
   of levels of recursion named will allow (default 7), and the number of
   iterative queries that it will send (default 50) before terminating a
   recursive query (CVE-2014-8500, bnc#908994). The recursion depth limit is
   configured via the "max-recursion-depth"
         option, and the query limit via the "max-recursion-queries" option.


         A flaw when handling malformed NSEC3-signed zones could lead named
   to a crash. (CVE-2014-0591, bnc#858639)

   Additionally, a non-security bug has been fixed:

       * Fix handling of TXT records in ldapdump (bnc#743758).

   Security Issues:

       * CVE-2014-8500
       * CVE-2014-0591
