ISC BIND 9.18.0 < 9.18.3 Assertion Failure (cve-2022-1183)

high Nessus Plugin ID 161326

Synopsis

The remote name server is affected by an assertion failure vulnerability vulnerability.

Description

The version of ISC BIND installed on the remote host is prior to tested version. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the cve-2022-1183 advisory.

- An assertion failure can be triggered if a TLS connection to a configured http TLS listener with a defined endpoint is destroyed too early.On vulnerable configurations, the named daemon may, in some circumstances, terminate with an assertion failure. Vulnerable configurations are those that include a reference to http within the listen-on statements in their named.conf . TLS is used by both DNS over TLS (DoT) and DNS over HTTPS (DoH), but configurations using DoT alone are unaffected. (CVE-2022-1183)

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

Solution

Upgrade to ISC BIND version 9.18.3 or later.
