Description

http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2016-2776 https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2016-2776 ISC BIND is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by an assertion failure in buffer.c while a nameserver is building responses to a specifically constructed request. By sending a specially crafted DNS packet, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to make named exit unexpectedly with an assertion failure. ISC BIND is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by an error when lwresd or the named lwres option is enabled. By sending an overly long request, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause the daemon to crash.

This plugin has been deprecated to better accommodate iFix supersedence with replacement plugin aix_bind_advisory13.nasl (plugin id 102125).
