SynopsisThe remote AIX host has a version of bind installed that is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.
DescriptionThe 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.
SolutionA fix is available and can be downloaded from the IBM AIX website.
