ISC BIND 9.7.1 < 9.7.1 P2 'RRSIG' Record Type Remote DoS

Medium

Synopsis

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

Description

The remote host is running BIND, an open source name server.

Versions of BIND 9.7.1 earlier than 9.7.1 P2 are potentially affected by a remote denial of service vulnerability when handling specially crafted queries for 'RRSIG' records.

Solution

Upgrade to BIND 9.7.1 P2 or later.
