|Bugzilla:||1051717: CVE-2014-0591 bind: named crash when handling malformed NSEC3-signed zones|
A denial of service flaw was found in the way BIND handled queries for NSEC3-signed zones. A remote attacker could use this flaw against an authoritative name server that served NCES3-signed zones by sending a specially crafted query, which, when processed, would cause named to crash.
This issue does not affect the version of bind and bind97 as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. For a technical explanation please see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1051717#c25
