BIND DNAME Response Processing Bug Lets Remote Users Cause the Target Service to Crash
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1037156
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1037156
CVE Reference:   CVE-2016-8864   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Nov 1 2016
Impact:   Denial of service via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): 9.0.x - 9.8.x, 9.9.0 - 9.9.9-P3, 9.9.3-S1 - 9.9.9-S5, 9.10.0 - 9.10.4-P3, 9.11.0
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in BIND. A remote user can cause the target service to crash.

A remote user can return a recursive response containing a specially crafted DNAME answer to trigger a flaw in 'db.c' or 'resolver.c' and cause the target resolver to crash.

Tony Finch (University of Cambridge), Marco Davids (SIDN Labs), and others reported this vulnerability.

Impact:   A remote user can cause the target service to crash.
Solution:   The vendor has issued a fix (9.9.9-P4, 9.10.4-P4, 9.11.0-P1).

CVE-2016-8864: A problem handling responses containing a DNAME
answer can lead to an assertion failure

CVE:                    CVE-2016-8864
Document Version:       2.0
Posting date:           1 November 2016
Program Impacted:       BIND
Versions affected:      9.0.x -> 9.8.x, 9.9.0 -> 9.9.9-P3,
                        9.9.3-S1 -> 9.9.9-S5, 9.10.0 -> 9.10.4-P3,
                        9.11.0
Severity:               High
Exploitable:            Remotely

Description:

   A defect in BIND's handling of responses containing a DNAME answer
   can cause a resolver to exit after encountering an assertion failure
   in db.c or resolver.c

Impact:

   During processing of a recursive response that contains a DNAME
   record in the answer section, BIND can stop execution after
   encountering an assertion error in resolver.c (error message:
   "INSIST((valoptions & 0x0002U) != 0) failed") or db.c (error
   message: "REQUIRE(targetp != ((void *)0) && *targetp == ((void
   *)0)) failed").

 ther of these error conditions will stop,
   resulting in denial of service to clients.  The risk to authoritative
   servers is minimal; recursive servers are chiefly at risk.
