New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 3.6

Synopsis

The remote AIX host has a version of bind installed that is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.

Description

The version of bind installed on the remote AIX host is affected by a denial of service vulnerability due to improper parsing of incorrect class attributes in db.c. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a malformed class attribute, to trigger a REQUIRE assertion failure, resulting in a denial of service condition.

Solution

A fix is available and can be downloaded from the IBM AIX website.
