Title:SUSE: Security Advisory (SUSE-SU-2015:0011-1)
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'bind' package(s) announced via the SUSE-SU-2015:0011-1 advisory.
The remote host is missing an update for the 'bind' package(s) announced via the SUSE-SU-2015:0011-1 advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
bind has been updated to version 9.9.6P1, fixing the following security issue:

* 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.

Additionally, two non-security issues have been fixed:

* bnc#882511: Fix a multi-thread issue with IXFR.
* bnc#743758: Fix handling of TXT records in ldapdump.

Security Issues:

* CVE-2014-8500

Affected Software/OS:
'bind' package(s) on SUSE Linux Enterprise Software Development Kit 11 SP3, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP3, SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11 SP3

Please install the updated package(s).
