DNS Server BIND version Directive Remote Version Detection
Info Nessus Plugin ID 10028
SynopsisIt is possible to obtain the version number of the remote DNS server.
DescriptionThe remote host is running BIND or another DNS server that reports its version number when it receives a special request for the text 'version.bind' in the domain 'chaos'.
This version is not necessarily accurate and could even be forged, as some DNS servers send the information based on a configuration file.
SolutionIt is possible to hide the version number of BIND by using the 'version' directive in the 'options' section in named.conf.
