1 The specified products contain the affected code. However, F5 identifies the vulnerability status as Not vulnerable because the attacker cannot exploit the code in default, standard, or recommended configurations. The specified products are only vulnerable when you configure DNS64 with the "break-dnssec yes" zone statement (CVE-2017-3136) or configure remote RNDC connectivity to the named service (CVE-2017-3138).

If you are running a version listed in the Versions known to be vulnerable column, you can eliminate this vulnerability by upgrading to a version listed in the Versions known to be not vulnerable column. If the table lists only an older version than what you are currently running, or does not list a non-vulnerable version, then no upgrade candidate currently exists.

Mitigation

To mitigate this vulnerability, avoid configuring DNS64 with the "break-dnssec yes" zone statement (CVE-2017-3136) and remote RNDC connectivity to the named service (CVE-2017-3138).
