[slackware-security]  bind (SSA:2007-207-01)

New bind packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2,
11.0, and 12.0 to fix security issues.

The first issue which allows remote attackers to make recursive queries only
affects Slackware 12.0.  More details about this issue may be found in the
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-2925

The second issue is the discovery that BIND9's query IDs are cryptographically
weak.  This issue affects the versions of BIND9 in all supported Slackware
versions.  More details about this issue may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-2926


Here are the details from the Slackware 12.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/bind-9.4.1_P1-i486-1_slack12.0.tgz:
  Upgraded to bind-9.4.1_P1 to fix security issues.
  The default access control lists allow remote attackers to make recursive
  queries in BIND9 versions 9.4.0 through 9.4.1.
  The query IDs in BIND9 prior to BIND 9.4.1-P1 are cryptographically weak.
  For more information on these issues, see:
    http://www.isc.org/index.pl?/sw/bind/bind-security.php
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-2925
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-2926
  (* Security fix *)

Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
