CVE:                 CVE-2019-6468
Document version:    2.0
Posting date:        24 April 2019
Program impacted:    BIND
Versions affected:   BIND Supported Preview Edition version
                     9.10.5-S1 -> 9.11.5-S5. ONLY BIND Supported
                     Preview Edition releases are affected.
Severity:            Medium
Exploitable:         Remotely


   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.
