	Enea Linux Security Advisory

Product/package: Enea Linux 6.0: (bind 9.10.3-P3)
Severity: Medium, High
Architecture: All
CVE Name: CVE-2016-2775 and CVE-2016-2776

This security update fixes following vulnerabilities in bind 9.10.3-P3.
CVE-2016-2775: A query name which is too long can cause a segmentation
fault in lwresd.

CVE-2016-2776: Assertion Failure in buffer.c While Building Responses to
a Specifically Constructed Request.

ISC BIND 9.x before 9.9.9-P2, 9.10.x before 9.10.4-P2, and 9.11.x before
9.11.0b2, when lwresd or the named lwres option is enabled, allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) via a long
request that uses the lightweight resolver protocol.

buffer.c in named in ISC BIND 9 before 9.9.9-P3, 9.10.x before
9.10.4-P3, and 9.11.x before 9.11.0rc3 does not properly construct
responses, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(assertion failure and daemon exit) via a crafted query.
