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's different from CVSS.

SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionJan-Piet Mens discovered that the BIND DNS server would crash when processing an invalid DNSSEC key rollover, either due to an error on the zone operator's part, or due to interference with network traffic by an attacker. This issue affects configurations with the directives 'dnssec-validation auto;' (as enabled in the Debian default configuration) or 'dnssec-lookaside auto;'.
SolutionUpgrade the bind9 packages.
For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 1:9.8.4.dfsg.P1-6+nmu2+deb7u4.
