ISC BIND 9.x < 9.9.7-P3 / 9.9.8 / 9.9.8-S1 / 9.9.8rc1 / 9.9.9-S3 / 9.10.2-P4 / 9.10.3 / 9.10.3rc1 Multiple DoS

High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 9866

Synopsis

The remote DNS server may be affected by multiple Denial of Service (DoS) attack vectors.

Description

Versions of ISC BIND 9.x prior to 9.9.7-P3, 9.9.9-S3, 9.10.2-P4, and 9.10.3 are unpatched for the following vulnerabilities :

- An assertion flaw exists that is triggered when parsing malformed DNSSEC keys. With a specially crafted query to a zone containing such a key, a remote attacker can cause a validating resolver to exit. (OSVDB 126995)
- A flaw exists in the 'fromwire_openpgpkey()' function in 'openpgpkey_61.c' that is triggered when the length of the data is less than 1. With a specially crafted response to a query, a remote attacker can cause an assertion failure that terminates named. (OSVDB 126997)

Solution

Upgrade ISC BIND to version 9.10.3 or later. If version 9.10.x cannot be obtained, versions 9.10.3-rc1, 9.10.2-P4, 9.9.9-S3, 9.9.8rc1, 9.9.8-S1, 9.9.8 and 9.9.7-P3 are also patched for these vulnerabilities.
