References: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-0025 https://www.isc.org/node/373 http://groups.google.com/group/comp.protocols.dns.bind/browse_thread/thread/49ef622c8329fd33

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.
