1. Summary:

Updated bind packages that fix one security issue are now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Extended Life Cycle Support.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
important security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)

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.

A flaw was found in the way BIND handled zero length resource data records.
A malicious owner of a DNS domain could use this flaw to create
specially-crafted DNS resource records that would cause a recursive
resolver or secondary server to crash or, possibly, disclose portions of
its memory. (CVE-2012-1667)

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
