Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2019-04-24 10:59:24 UTC
As per upstream advisory:

In BIND Supported Preview Edition, an error in the nxdomain-redirect feature can occur in versions which support EDNS Client Subnet (ECS) features. In those versions which have ECS support, enabling nxdomain-redirect is likely to lead to BIND exiting due to assertion failure.

If nxdomain-redirect is enabled (via configuration) in a vulnerable BIND release, a malicious party can cause BIND to exit by deliberately triggering the bug.

Comment 2 Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2019-04-24 11:00:47 UTC

This issue only affects the special feature preview branch of bind. Bind packages shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux are not affected by this flaw.
