high Nessus Plugin ID 125738
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 name server is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.


The version of ISC BIND Supported Preview Edition running on the remote host is version 9.10.5-S1 through 9.11.6-S1. It is, therefore, affected by an error related to handling RRSIG data that allows an attacker to crash the application if the EDNS Client Subnet (ECS) feature is enabled.


Upgrade to ISC BIND version 9.11.7-S1 or later.
