ISC BIND DNSSEC NSEC/NSEC3 cache poisoning

bind-dnssecnsec-cache-poisoning (55753) The risk level is classified as MediumMedium Risk

Description:

ISC BIND could allow a remote attacker to poison the DNS cache, caused by an error in the DNSSEC NSEC/NSEC3 validation code. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by circumventing transaction ID and source port randomization to cause invalid NXDOMAIN responses to be cached resulting in the resolver returning queries with the AD flag set.
