Description Josh Bressers 2010-01-12 19:56:05 UTC
We received the following advisory from ISC:

Description:
There was an error in the DNSSEC NSEC/NSEC3 validation code that could
cause bogus NXDOMAIN responses (that is, NXDOMAIN responses for records
proven by NSEC or NSEC3 to exist) to be cached as if they had validated
correctly, so that future queries to the resolver would return the bogus
NXDOMAIN with the AD flag set.

Impact:
This problem affects all DNSSEC-validating resolvers. It would be
difficult to exploit due to other existing protections against cache
poisoning (including transaction ID and source port randomization), but
it could impair the ability of DNSSEC to protect against a
denial-of-service attack on a secure zone.

Workarounds:
None, administrators need to upgrade to one of the versions detailed below.

Active exploits:
None known at this time.

Solution:
Upgrade BIND to one of the following: 9.4.3-P5, 9.5.2-P2 or 9.6.1-P3.
There are no fixes available for BIND versions 9.0 through 9.3, as those
releases are at End of Life. Note for BIND 9.7 beta-testers:
pre-releases of 9.7.0 are vulnerable. Upcoming releases will include
these patches.
