The remote host is missing updates announced in advisory RHSA-2009:0020. A flaw was discovered in the way BIND checked the return value of the OpenSSL DSA_do_verify function. On systems using DNSSEC, a malicious zone could present a malformed DSA certificate and bypass proper certificate validation, allowing spoofing attacks. (CVE-2009-0025) For users of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 this update also addresses a bug which can cause BIND to occasionally exit with an assertion failure. All BIND users are advised to upgrade to the updated package, which contains a backported patch to resolve this issue. After installing the update, BIND daemon will be restarted automatically.
