F5 Networks BIG-IP : BIND vulnerability (K10092301)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 127495
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.

Description

A race condition which may occur when discarding malformed packets can result in BIND exiting due to a REQUIRE assertion failure in dispatch.c. Versions affected: BIND 9.11.0 -> 9.11.7, 9.12.0 -> 9.12.4-P1, 9.14.0 -> 9.14.2. Also all releases of the BIND 9.13 development branch and version 9.15.0 of the BIND 9.15 development branch and BIND Supported Preview Edition versions 9.11.3-S1 -> 9.11.7-S1. (CVE-2019-6471)

Impact

A remote attacker, who could cause the BIND resolver to perform queries on a server, which responds deliberately with malformed answers, can cause named to exit and result in a denial-of-service (DoS) condition.

Solution

Upgrade to one of the non-vulnerable versions listed in the F5 Solution K10092301.
