Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2011-1910 to the following vulnerability:

A BIND 9 DNS server set up to be a caching resolver is vulnerable to a user querying a domain with very large resource record sets (RRSets) when trying to negatively cache a response. This can cause the BIND 9 DNS server (named process) to crash.

Comment 6 Usman Ahmad 2011-06-03 06:52:51 UTC
How can i verify that my current BIND version (9.4.3-P3) is affected by the bug reported in CVE-2011-1910. ?? 

Please guide

Comment 7 Vincent Danen 2011-06-14 19:18:05 UTC
You will need to look at the upstream advisory to find that information out.  We do not ship BIND 9.4.3 in any products, so we have not done any investigation as to whether or not it is vulnerable (it does look like some versions of 9.4 may be vulnerable, judging from the upstream advisory page).

Comment 8 Usman Ahmad 2011-06-28 09:32:08 UTC
Is there any command or stress tool by which i can check that my DNS service is vulnerable or not?

There is no tool for such checks. However I checked 9.4.3-P3 source and this version is NOT vulnerable.
