Ubuntu 18.04 LTS / 20.04 LTS / 21.10 : Bind vulnerabilities (USN-5332-1)

high Nessus Plugin ID 159059

Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

The remote Ubuntu 18.04 LTS / 20.04 LTS / 21.10 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the USN-5332-1 advisory.

- BIND 9.16.11 -> 9.16.26, 9.17.0 -> 9.18.0 and versions 9.16.11-S1 -> 9.16.26-S1 of the BIND Supported Preview Edition. Specifically crafted TCP streams can cause connections to BIND to remain in CLOSE_WAIT status for an indefinite period of time, even after the client has terminated the connection.
(CVE-2022-0396)

- BIND 9.11.0 -> 9.11.36 9.12.0 -> 9.16.26 9.17.0 -> 9.18.0 BIND Supported Preview Editions: 9.11.4-S1 -> 9.11.36-S1 9.16.8-S1 -> 9.16.26-S1 Versions of BIND 9 earlier than those shown - back to 9.1.0, including Supported Preview Editions - are also believed to be affected but have not been tested as they are EOL.
The cache could become poisoned with incorrect records leading to queries being made to the wrong servers, which might also result in false information being returned to clients. (CVE-2021-25220)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
