AusCERT Security Bulletin Summary
Product: BIND 9.7.1-P1
Operating System: Windows

Impact/Access: Denial of Service -- Remote/Unauthenticated
CVE Names: CVE-2010-0213
Member content until: Sunday, August 15 2010
Comment: Note that 9.7.0-P2 is NOT impacted by this vulnerability.
Internet Systems Consortium (ISC) have released an update to BIND 9.7.1.
This update (9.7.1-P2) includes security fixes. 
The vulnerability is in the code that handles queries for the "RRSIG"
record type. Under certain conditions the query may cause the server
to enter a loop that keeps sending RRSIG queries to the authoritative
server for the queried name.
According to ISC, this is only triggered when "the server has one or
more trust anchors configured statically and/or via DLV, then if the
answer is not already in cache". 
ISC has released BIND 9.7.1-P2 that corrects this vulnerability. 
They have not listed any workarounds, so if you are running BIND
9.7.1 you are encouraged to upgrade.
