Description

LSAC(v2)
The Berkeley Internet Name Domain (BIND) is an implementation of the Domain Name System (DNS) protocols. It contains a DNS server (named), a resolver library with routines for applications to use when interfacing with DNS, and tools for verifying that the DNS server is operating correctly. These packages contain version 9.7 of the BIND suite. This update fixes the following bug: * When authoritative servers did not return a Start of Authority (SOA) record, the "named" daemon failed to cache and return answers. A patch has been provided to address this issue and "named" is now able to handle such under-performing servers correctly. (BZ#883402) Users of bind97 are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
