Medium

Vendor

Ubuntu, Bind9

Versions Affected

  • Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Description

Bind could be made to crash if it received specially crafted network traffic.

It was discovered that Bind incorrectly handled input received by the rndc control channel. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause Bind to crash, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2016-1285)

It was discovered that Bind incorrectly parsed resource record signatures for DNAME resource records. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause Bind to crash, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2016-1286)
