BIND 9 Denial of Service Vulnerabilities Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks version of BIND
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote name server may be affected by multiple denial of service
The version of BIND installed on the remote host suggests that it
suffers from multiple denial of service vulnerabilities, which may be
triggered by either by sending a large volume of recursive queries or
queries for SIG records where there are multiple SIG(covered) RRsets.
Note that Nessus obtained the version by sending a special DNS request
for the text 'version.bind' in the domain 'chaos', the value of which
can be and sometimes is tweaked by DNS administrators.
