F5 Networks BIG-IP : BIND vulnerability (SOL14601)

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


ISC BIND 9.8.x through 9.8.4-P1 and 9.9.x through 9.9.2-P1, in certain configurations involving DNS64 with a Response Policy Zone that lacks an AAAA rewrite rule, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (assertion failure and named daemon exit) via a query for an AAAA record.


Upgrade to one of the non-vulnerable versions listed in the F5 Solution SOL14601.
