medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5803
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote DNS server is vulnerable to a denial of service attack.

Description

The remote host is running Bind, a popular name server. Versions of Bind 9.7.1-9.7.2-P3 are affected by a denial of service vulnerability. There is a small window of time after an authoritative server processes a successful IXFR transfer or a dynamic update during which the IXFR / update coupled with a query may cause a deadlock to occur. A server experiencing a high query and/or update rate will have a higher chance of being deadlocked.

Solution

Upgrade to BIND 9.7.3 or later.
