Description

LSAC(v2)
The system-config-bind packages provide a graphical user interface (GUI) to configure the Berkeley Internet Name Domain (BIND) Domain Name System (DNS) server. This update fixes the following bug: * Prior to this update, the system-config-bind tool did not correctly handle IPv6 addresses without at least one zero sequence. As a consequence, system-config-bind could fail to start with the error "string index out of range" when the full IPv6 address in a configuration file did not contain any zero sequence. This update modifies the underlying code to handle IPv6 addresses without a zero-sequence as expected. Now, all IPv6 addresses can be used. (BZ#669757) All users of system-config-bind are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
