Security Bulletin

This security bulletin contains information about 2 vulnerabilities.

1) Resource management error

EUVDB-ID: #VU61423

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2022-0396

CWE-ID: CWE-399 - Resource Management Errors

Exploit availability: No

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to improper management of internal resources within the application that allows TCP connection slots to be consumed for an indefinite time frame via a specifically crafted TCP stream sent from a client. A remote attacker can initiate a specially crafted TCP stream that can cause connections to BIND to remain in CLOSE_WAIT status for an indefinite period of time, even after the client has terminated the connection.

This issue can only be triggered on BIND servers which have keep-response-order enabled, which is not the default configuration. The keep-response-order option is an ACL block; any hosts which are specified within it will be able to trigger this issue on affected versions.

Mitigation

Update the affected package bind to version 9.18.1-1.
