Bug Fix Advisory system-config-bind bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2013:0037-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2013-01-07
Last updated on: 2013-01-07
Affected Products: RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)

Details

Updated system-config-bind packages that fix one bug are now available for Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

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.
