Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in BIND, the worst of which
may allow remote Denial of Service.

Background
==========

BIND is the Berkeley Internet Name Domain Server.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 net-dns/bind < 9.9.1_p3 >= 9.9.1_p3

Description
===========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in BIND:

* Domain names are not properly revoked due to an error in the cache
update policy (CVE-2012-1033).
* BIND accepts records with zero-length RDATA fields (CVE-2012-1667).
* An assertion failure from the failing-query cache could occur when
DNSSEC validation is enabled (CVE-2012-3817).
* A memory leak may occur under high TCP query loads (CVE-2012-3868).
* An assertion error can occur when a query is performed for a record
with RDATA greater than 65535 bytes (CVE-2012-4244).

Impact
======

A remote attacker may be able to cause a Denial of Service condition or
keep domain names resolvable after it has been deleted from
registration.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All BIND users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-dns/bind-9.9.1_p3"
