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


The 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.
