rPath Issue Tracking System:
Previous versions of the bind package are vulnerable to a
cache-poisoning attack due to a weakness in the DNS protocol.
This update improves bind's resilience to this attack; however,
it does not provide a definitive solution.
Additionally, the bind package has been updated with root
nameserver information, including the new IP address for
the "L" root nameserver.
