medium Nessus Plugin ID 49777
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 multiple vulnerabilities.


According to its self-reported version number, the remote installation of BIND is affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A flaw exists that allows access to a cache via recursion even though the ACL disallows it. Note that this only occurs if BIND is operating as both an authoritative and recursive name server in the same view.

- If BIND, acting as a DNSSEC validating server, has two or more trust anchors configured in named.conf for the same zone and the response for a record in that zone from the authoritative server includes a bad signature, the validating server will crash while trying to validate that query.


Upgrade to BIND 9.7.2-P2 or later.
