Description

Vulnerability Recommended Actions

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

To mitigate this vulnerability, F5 recommends that you do not make any changes to the default BIND configurations. If recursion, zone updates, or DDNS updates have been manually enabled, you can mitigate this vulnerability by disabling these features. Additionally, you should avoid running the rndc dumpdb command.
