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: 4.4
SynopsisThe remote name server is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version number, the version of ISC BIND running on the remote name server is 9.9.x prior to 9.9.9-P3, 9.10.x prior to 9.10.4-P3, or 9.11.x prior to 9.11.0rc3. It is, therefore, affected by a denial of service vulnerability within file buffer.c due to improper construction of responses to crafted requests. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted query, to cause an assertion failure, resulting in a daemon exit.
SolutionUpgrade to ISC BIND version 9.9.9-P3 / 9.9.9-S5 / 9.10.4-P3 / 9.11.0rc3 or later. Note that BIND 9 version 9.9.9-S5 is available exclusively for eligible ISC Support customers.
