AIX 6.1 TL 9 : bind (IV81279) (deprecated)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 90717


This plugin has been deprecated.


ISC BIND is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by improper bounds checking in apl_42.c. By sending specially crafted Address Prefix List (APL) data, a remote authenticated attacker could exploit this vulnerability to trigger an INSIST assertion failure and cause the named process to terminate.

This plugin has been deprecated to better accommodate iFix supersedence with replacement plugin aix_bind_advisory11.nasl (plugin id 102123).
