    Hello,

    I have a fresh install of WHM on a dedicated server with CloudLinux and after running a PCI Compliance scan the following is flagged:

    ISC BIND 9 Zero-Length RDATA Section Denial of Service / Information Disclosure dns (53/udp)
    CVE-2012-1667

    How is best to go about rectifying this please.

    With Thanks

    Aaron

    Hello,

    Updates to Bind are provided by operating system vendors (e.g. CentOS, RedHat). You can verify if the CVE you referenced is already backported to the version of Bind installed on your system with the following command:

    Code:
    rpm -q --changelog bind | grep  CVE-2012-1667
    You can then provide the output to the PCI compliance company to show them the issue is already addressed on your system.

    Thank you.
