ISC BIND 9 Remote Denial Of Service Vulnerability

BIND is a server program that implements the domain name service protocol. It is in extremely wide use on the Internet, in use by most of the DNS servers.

A vulnerability has been reported in some versions of BIND 9. Under some circumstances, the name server named may fail an internal consistancy check. As a result, the server will shut down, and is no longer available to respond to further DNS requests.

It has been reported that some HP products may ship with vulnerable versions of BIND 9, as does Caldera Open UNIX.
