Description


Debian Security Advisory DSA 409-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Matt Zimmerman January 5th, 2004 http://www.debian.org/security/faq


Package : bind Vulnerability : denial of service Problem-Type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE Ids : CAN-2003-0914

A vulnerability was discovered in BIND, a domain name server, whereby a malicious name server could return authoritative negative responses with a large TTL (time-to-live) value, thereby rendering a domain name unreachable. A successful attack would require that a vulnerable BIND instance submit a query to a malicious nameserver.

The bind9 package is not affected by this vulnerability.

For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 1:8.3.3-2.0woody2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in version 1:8.4.3-1.

We recommend that you update your bind package.
