ISC BIND 9 'Query.c' Logging Resolver DoS

high Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 6093
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 9.4-ESV earlier than 9.4-ESV-R5-P1, 9.6-ESV earlier than 9.6-ESV-R5-P1, 9.7.x earlier than 9.7.4-P1, and 9.8.x earlier than 9.8.1-P1 are potentially affected by a denial of service vulnerability. An unidentified network event causes BIND9 resolvers to cache an invalid record, subsequent queries for which could crash the resolvers with an assertion failure.

Solution

Upgrade to BIND 9.4-ESV-R5-P1 / 9.6-ESV-R5-P1, 9.7.4-P1, 9.8.1-P1, or later.
