Debian DLA-1697-1 : bind9 security updat

medium Nessus Plugin ID 122513
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


Two issues have been found in bind9, the Internet Domain Name Server.

CVE-2019-6465 Zone transfer for DLZs are executed though not permitted by ACLs.

CVE-2018-5745 Avoid assertion and thus causing named to deliberately exit when a trust anchor's key is replaced with a key which uses an unsupported algorithm.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version 1:9.9.5.dfsg-9+deb8u17.

We recommend that you upgrade your bind9 packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Upgrade the affected packages.
