Detection Type:
Linux Distribution Package

Summary:
Check the version of bind97

Detection Method:
Checks if a vulnerable version is present on the target host.

Technical Details:
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. A denial of service flaw was found in the way BIND parsed signature records for DNAME records. By sending a specially crafted query, a remote attacker could use this flaw to cause named to crash. (CVE-2016-1286) A denial of service flaw was found in the way BIND processed certain control channel input. A remote attacker able to send a malformed packet to the control channel could use this flaw to cause named to crash. (CVE-2016-1285) Red Hat would like to thank ISC for reporting these issues. All bind97 users are advised to upgrade to these updated Linux Distribution Packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. After installing the update, the BIND daemon (named) will be restarted automatically.

Affected Versions:
bind97 on CentOS 5

Recommendations:
Please Install the Updated Packages.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
