AIX 5.3 TL 12 : bind9 (IZ99391)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 63827
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.


The security status of an NS RRset is not properly determined during a DNSKEY algorithm rollover which can allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service.

Signed negative responses and corresponding RRSIG records in the cache are not properly handled which can allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service.


Install the appropriate interim fix.
