Ubuntu 18.04 LTS : bind9 vulnerability (USN-3683-1)
High Nessus Plugin ID 110532
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
DescriptionAndrew Skalski discovered that Bind could incorrectly enable recursion when the 'allow-recursion' setting wasn't specified. This issue could improperly permit recursion to all clients, contrary to expectations.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected bind9 package.
