High-Risk Internet Security Vulnerabilities
The US Government-funded CERT co-ordination centre has issued an emergency warning to computer system administrators to fix the software flaw affecting the vast majority of Internet Domain Name Servers. The Computer Vulnerability Emergency Response Team (COVERT) at PGP Security, a Network Associates business, announced the discovery of the high-risk vulnerabilities in the BIND 4 and BIND 8 DNS server software on Monday 29 January 2001. COVERT discovered the vulnerability while conducting research into core services of the Internet infrastructure and immediately contacted the Internet Software Consortium (ISC) to help develop a patch for all affected users.
If you would like to speak to Allan Bell, senior marketing manager at Network Associates International for further comment on this issue, please let me know and I can arrange this for you. He can also talk about the potential effects of these vulnerabilities on local business, as well as the work of the COVERT Labs regarding security vulnerabilities.
Alternately you can call Allan directly on 0412 411 929.
