Synopsis :

The remote name server is affected by a memory exhaustion

Description :

According to its self-reported version number, the installation of
ISC BIND running on the remote name server is affected by a memory
exhaustion vulnerability. A server is potentially vulnerable if it
accepts zone data from another source, as no limit is currently
placed on zone data size.

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead
relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
