RHSA-2008:0533 -- bind security update (Important)

oval:org.mitre.oval:def:28787

Updated bind packages that help mitigate DNS spoofing attacks are now available. This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. We have updated the Enterprise Linux 5 packages in this advisory. The default and sample caching-nameserver configuration files have been updated so that they do not specify a fixed query-source port. Administrators wishing to take advantage of randomized UDP source ports should check their configuration file to ensure they have not specified fixed query-source ports. ISC BIND (Berkeley Internet Name Domain) is an implementation of the DNS (Domain Name System) protocols.
