Description:
Previous versions of BIND incorrectly interpret the return value of the
OpenSSL DSA_do_verify function. On systems using DNSSEC, a malicious zone
could present a malformed DSA certificate and bypass proper certificate
validation, allowing spoofing attacks.

rPath Linux does not ship with DNSSEC enabled, and therefore is not, by
default, vulnerable to this attack.
