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 a flaw that is triggered during the handling of a specially crafted answer packet in a response to an RTYPE ANY query. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause an assertion failure and daemon exit.
SolutionA fix is available and can be downloaded from the IBM AIX website.
