New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 3.6
SynopsisThe remote name server is affected by an allow-recursion vulnerability.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version, the instance of ISC BIND 9 running on the remote name server is 9.9.12, 9.10.7, 9.11.3, 9.12.0 prior to or equal to 9.12.1-P2, development release 9.13.0, 9.9.12-S1, 9.11.3-S1, or 9.11.3-S2. It is, therefore, affected by an allow-recursion vulnerability which exists in the named.conf due to a regression issue introduced by change #4777.
An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause undesirable behavior such as a degradation or denial of service, DNS reflection attacks, or potentially leak private information about what queries have been performed.
SolutionUpgrade to ISC BIND version 9.9.13 / 9.10.8 / 9.11.4 / 9.12.2 or later or apply the workaround as per the vendor advisory.
