New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote name server is affected by a race condition vulnerability.

Description

According to its self-reported version, the instance of ISC BIND 9 running on the remote name server is between 9.11.0 and 9.11.7, 9.11.3-S1 and 9.11.7-S1, 9.12.0 and 9.12.4-P1, 9.13.x, 9.14.0 and 9.14.3, or 9.15 It is, therefore, affected by a race condition vulnerability, which may cause BIND to exit with an assertion failure when discarding malformed packets.

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Upgrade to ISC BIND version 9.11.8 / 9.11.8-S1 / 9.12.4-P2 / 9.14.3 / 9.15.1 or later.
