It'll be one of the 42 CVEs in the table at the top of this page:

I think all of them probably apply to the version you are running.

However you are running a version with Red Hat's mystery meat patches,
so the vulnerabilities in what you are running won't match the nominal
ISC version number.

If you are running a service based on Red Hat's code, you should really
be paying for support from Red Hat. If that isn't an option, use Carl
Byington's RPMs instead.

Well the root cause is that your management aren't supporting your
routine security patch process!
