Test ID:
Category:F5 Local Security Checks
Title:F5 BIG-IP - BIND vulnerability CVE-2015-5477
Summary:The remote host is missing a security patch.
The remote host is missing a security patch.

Vulnerability Insight:
An error in the handling of TKEY queries can be exploited by an attacker for use as a denial-of-service vector, as a constructed packet can use the defect to trigger a REQUIRE assertion failure, causing BIND to exit. (CVE-2015-5477)

Vulnerability Impact:
A remote attacker may be able to cause a denial-of-service (DoS) attack on the BIG-IP system's local instance of BIND by using a specially crafted DNS request in configurations that expose BIND to requests from untrusted users.Note: If the BIND daemon stops responding, services that do not rely on the use of local instances of BIND will continue to function.

See the referenced vendor advisory for a solution.
