Urgent Update needed for DNS problem

Postby Husse on Fri Jul 11, 2008 7:33 am

Update your systems immediately!
An error has been disclosed that affects the DNS protocol
Both DNS servers and clients need to update, and there is already some level 3 updates to fix this

This can be used for spoofing but as the bug is being fixed this will hopefully not happen

Will Mint 4 users be able to update through mintUpdate, or just through the Bind vulnerability ink provided? Casual Mint users may miss this forum announcement, but I realize it may be a lot of work to setup mintUpdate for previous versions of Mint.

You can use the DNS tester to the right, about 1/2-way down ("Check my DNS") to see.

I'm using Darnya KCE, up-to-date, and I passed.

Best,

Luckily (? :)) this is fixed upstream in Ubuntu - they have a few more people than we and even paid people ...

yes - but Ubuntu seems to have dropped the ball on many, many bug fixes according to many posts and articles, and comments across the web.

did you maybe manually open ports for networking or some such thing? I am 'stock' Daryna and I never opened anything... Just a thought.

This is a good possibility, I have not done anything out of the ordinary on my linux mint. However my results from Windows seems to be fine.
