Description of the vulnerability 

The ISC BIND product is a DNS server.

It can compute responses for IPv6 address queries from data for IPv4 addresses. However, when this function is enabled and that the function "Response Policy Zone" is also enabled, an assertion may be evaluated as false, which stops the process with a SIGABORT signal.

An attacker can therefore force an assertion failure when functions DNS64 and RPZ of ISC BIND are both enabled, in order to trigger a denial of service.
