Bonjour < 1.0.5 Multiple Vulnerabilities (APPLE-SA-2009-09-09)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 34242
SynopsisThe remote Windows host has an application that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionBonjour for Windows is installed on the remote host. The installed version is older than 1.0.5 and thus affected by multiple issues :
- A NULL pointer dereference issue could crash a remote Bonjour service while resolving a maliciously crafted '.local' domain name containing a long DNS label.
- Due to a weakness in DNS protocol implementation, it may be possible to spoof DNS responses for unicast DNS queries sent from an application that uses Bonjour APIs to send unicast DNS queries. It should be noted that there are currently no known applications that use Bonjour APIs for unicast DNS hostname resolution.
SolutionUpgrade to Bonjour for Windows version 1.0.5.
