New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The remote name server is affected by a vulnerability.


ISC BIND versions 9.14.6 / 9.15.4 and earlier are affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
- A flaw in mirror zone validity checking. It can allow zone data to be spoofed.

- A defect in code added to support QNAME minimization can cause named to exit with an assertion failure if a forwarder returns a referral rather than resolving the query.


Upgrade to ISC BIND version 9.14.7 / 9.15.5 or later.
