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.
