Security Advisory

Last modified: August 29, 2014

If you suspect you have found a security defect in BIND or DHCP, or if you wish to inquire about a security issue that you have learned about which has not yet been publicly announced, ISC encourages you to get in touch with our Security Officer by selecting the appropriate pull-down on the Bug Report Form.

Alternatively, you can email us at security-officer@isc.org.  However, plain-text e-mail is not a secure choice for communications concerning undisclosed security issues so we ask that you please encrypt your communications to us using the ISC Security Officer public key.

Reporting a Bug

  • You may report BIND or DHCP bugs, or request features by using the Bug Report Form.

You may also use email, if you prefer:

  • To report a bug in BIND, other than a security issue, please contact us via bind9-bugs@isc.org
  • To report a bug in ISC DHCP, other than a security issue, please contact us via  dhcp-bugs@isc.org

For listing of security vulnerabilities about BIND 9, visit ISC’s Knowledge Base’s BIND 9 Vulnerabilities Matrix.

As of Oct, 2010 ISC is now using the CVSS, a program of first.org and NIST, to determine the severity of potential security issues.
