ISC BIND 9 DNSSEC Cache Poisoning

Low Nessus Plugin ID 42983

Synopsis

The remote name server is affected by a cache poisoning vulnerability.

Description

According to its version number, the remote installation of BIND suffers from a cache poisoning vulnerability. This issue affects all versions prior to 9.4.3-P5, 9.5.2-P2 or 9.6.1-P3.

Note that only nameservers that allow recursive queries and validate DNSSEC records are affected. Nessus has not attempted to verify if this configuration applies to the remote service, though, so this could be a false positive.

Solution

Upgrade to BIND 9.4.3-P5 / 9.5.2-P2 / 9.6.1-P3 or later.
