CVE-2006-4096 INSIST failure in ISC BIND recursive query
Last modified: 2010-04-08 18:01:06 EDT
BIND before 9.2.6-P1 and 9.3.x before 9.3.2-P1 allows remote attackers to
cause a denial of service (crash) via a flood of recursive queries, which
cause an INSIST failure when the response is received after the recursion
queue is empty.
