Reed" <jreed@....org> To: oss-security@...ts.openwall.com Subject: CVE-2015-8704: Specific APL data could trigger an INSIST in apl_42.c causing BIND named to exit CVE: CVE-2015-8704 Document Version: 2.0 Posting date: 19 January 2016 Program Impacted: BIND Versions affected: 9.3.0->9.8.8, 9.9.0->9.9.8-P2, 9.9.3-S1->9.9.8-S3, 9.10.0->9.10.3-P2 Severity: High Exploitable: Remotely Description: A buffer size check used to guard against overflow could cause named to exit with an INSIST failure In apl_42.c. Impact: A server could exit due to an INSIST failure in apl_42.c when performing certain string formatting operations. Examples include (but may not be limited to): - Slaves using text-format db files could be vulnerable if receiving a malformed record in a zone transfer from their master. - Masters using text-format db files could be vulnerable if they accept a malformed record in a DDNS update message. - Recursive resolvers are potentially vulnerable when debug logging, if they are fed a deliberately malformed record by a malicious server. - A server which has cached a specially constructed record could encounter this condition while performing 'rndc dumpdb'. Please Note: Versions of BIND from 9.3 through 9.8 are also affected, but these branches are beyond their "end of life" (EOL) and no longer receive testing or security fixes from ISC. For current information on which versions are actively supported, please see http://www.isc.org/downloads/.
