1F5 Product Development has determined that these BIG-IP versions use a vulnerable version of BIND. However, BIND is not configured by default in a way that would make an exploit possible on these BIG-IP systems. These products are only vulnerable if BIND is manually configured to allow recursion and perform DNSSEC validation.

If the previous table lists a version in the Versions known to be not vulnerable column, you can eliminate this vulnerability by upgrading to the listed version. If the listed version is older than the version you are currently running, or if the table does not list any version in the column, then no upgrade candidate currently exists.

F5 responds to vulnerabilities in accordance with the Severity values published in the previous table. The Severity values and other security vulnerability parameters are defined in K4602: Overview of the F5 security vulnerability response policy.
