USN-1070-1: Bind vulnerability

23 February 2011




It was discovered that Bind incorrectly handled IXFR transfers and dynamic
updates while under heavy load when used as an authoritative server. A
remote attacker could use this flaw to cause Bind to stop responding,
resulting in a denial of service.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 10.10

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
