New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 6.1

Synopsis

The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.

Description

The RFC 5011 implementation in rdata.c in ISC BIND 9.7.x and 9.8.x before 9.8.5-P2, 9.8.6b1, 9.9.x before 9.9.3-P2, and 9.9.4b1, and DNSco BIND 9.9.3-S1 before 9.9.3-S1-P1 and 9.9.4-S1b1, allows remote attackers to cause a denial-of-service (DoS) through a query with a malformed RDATA section that is not properly handled during construction of a log message, as exploited in the wild in July 2013.

Solution

Upgrade to one of the non-vulnerable versions listed in the F5 Solution SOL14613.
