ISC BIND Zone Data Denial of Service
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 106679
SynopsisThe remote name server is affected by a memory exhaustion vulnerability
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version number, the installation of ISC BIND running on the remote name server is affected by a memory exhaustion vulnerability. A server is potentially vulnerable if it accepts zone data from another source, as no limit is currently placed on zone data size.
Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionFollow guidance provided by ISC advisory.
