According to its self-reported version number, the remote installation of BIND is affected by a denial of service vulnerability. The issue exists due to an error in the ‘prefetch’ feature which can cause named to terminate with a ‘REQUIRE’ assertion failure if it processes queries whose answers have particular attributes.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application’s self-reported version number.
