From Red Hat Security Advisory 2018:2571 :

An update for bind is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

The Berkeley Internet Name Domain (BIND) is an implementation of the Domain Name System (DNS) protocols. BIND includes a DNS server (named); a resolver library (routines for applications to use when interfacing with DNS); and tools for verifying that the DNS server is operating correctly.

An update for bind is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security
impact of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base
score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each
vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

Domain Name System (DNS) protocols. BIND includes a DNS server

Security Fix(es) :

* bind: processing of certain records when 'deny-answer-aliases' is in
use may trigger an assert leading to a denial of service
(CVE-2018-5740)
