Description Vincent Danen 2012-09-12 18:11:16 UTC
A flaw in ISC BIND was reported [1] where a nameserver could be caused to exit with a REQUIRE exception if it received a specially crafted resource record with RDATA that exceeded 65535 bytes and then received a subsequent query for that record.  This can be exploited remotely against recursive servers by getting them to query for records provided by an authoritative server.  It also affects authoritative servers if a zone containing this kind of resource record is loaded from a file on disk or via a zone transfer.
