Description of the vulnerability 

The ISC BIND product can be configured in recursive mode.

However, if a DNS reply contains a special DNAME entry, an assertion error occurs because developers did not except this case, which stops the process.

An attacker can therefore force an assertion error via DNAME of ISC BIND, in order to trigger a denial of service.
