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.
VPR Score: 3.6
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA denial of service flaw was found in the way BIND parsed certain malformed DNSSEC keys. A remote attacker could use this flaw to send a specially crafted DNS query (for example, a query requiring a response from a zone containing a deliberately malformed key) that would cause named functioning as a validating resolver to crash. (CVE-2015-5722)
After installing the update, the BIND daemon (named) will be restarted automatically.
