AIX 5.3 TL 12 : bind9 (IV09491)

high Nessus Plugin ID 63699
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 AIX host is missing a security patch.


An as-yet unidentified network event caused BIND 9 resolvers to cache an invalid record, subsequent queries for which could crash the resolvers with an assertion failure.

Furthermore, AIX BIND 9.4.1 is affected by the following three security vulnerabilities: CVE-2010-0382 - ISC BIND Out-Of-Bailwick Data Handling Error CVE-2010-0097 - ISC BIND Improper DNSSEC NSEC and NSEC3 Record CVE-2009-0025 - BIND OpenSSL DSA_do_verify and EVP_VerifyFinal.


Install the appropriate interim fix.
