high Nessus Plugin ID 140616

Synopsis

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

Description

In BIND 9.10.0 -> 9.11.21, 9.12.0 -> 9.16.5, 9.17.0 -> 9.17.3, also affects 9.10.5-S1 -> 9.11.21-S1 of the BIND 9 Supported Preview Edition, An attacker that can reach a vulnerable system with a specially crafted query packet can trigger a crash. To be vulnerable, the system must: * be running BIND that was built with '--enable-native-pkcs11' * be signing one or more zones with an RSA key * be able to receive queries from a possible attacker (CVE-2020-8623)

Impact

A zone signed with RSA is vulnerable to this issue. When an attacker sends a specially crafted query to the vulnerable zone, the BIND process experiences an assertion failure and restarts.

Solution

Upgrade to one of the non-vulnerable versions listed in the F5 Solution K82252291.
