Security Advisory

1) Reachable Assertion

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3: 5.7 [CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H/E:U/RL:O/RC:C] [PCI]

CVE-ID: CVE-2020-8622

CWE-ID: CWE-617 - Reachable Assertion

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to perform a denial of service (DoS) attack.

The vulnerability exists due to a reachable assertion when handling TSIG-signed request. An attacker on the network path for a TSIG-signed request, or operating the server receiving the TSIG-signed request, could send a truncated response to that request, triggering an assertion failure, causing the server to exit.

Mitigation

Update the affected packages.

3) Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls

Risk: Low

CVSSv3: 3.8 [CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:L/A:N/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2020-8624

CWE-ID: CWE-264 - Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote user to perform unauthorized actions.

The vulnerability exists due to change 4885 in BIND inadvertently caused "update-policy" rules of type "subdomain" to be treated as if they were of type "zonesub", allowing updates to all parts of the zone along with the intended subdomain. A remote user with privileges to change a specific subset of the zone's content could abuse these unintended additional privileges to update other contents of the zone.

Mitigation

Update the affected packages.
