high Nessus Plugin ID 102122
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

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.
