Re: [Full-disclosure] bind dos info?

Nope...I haven't seen anything yet either. Maybe someone else can
enlighten us? ;)

Thanks Michael!
I guess 'ISC is working on determining the ultimate cause by which a
record with this particular inconsistency is cached' is the part I'm
interested in reading about and there are no details yet..

Hello list,
I am wondering if anyone has more details on the bind9 DoS that just
out? (CVE-2011-4313) from what I can tell it appears a negative cached
object with a valid RR response associated with it(which shouldn't
will cause a vulnerabile bind9 server to crash.

See lines 1890 - 1896 of query.c
1890 if (result == DNS_R_NCACHENXRRSET) {
1891 dns_rdataset_disassociate(rdataset);
1892 /*
1893 * Negative cache entries don't have sigrdatasets.
1894 */
1895 INSIST(! dns_rdataset_isassociated(sigrdataset));
1896 }

Since allowing recursive queries must be enabled for this to work the
attacker must force a vulnerable dns server to query a malicous DNS
server by asking it to look up an NXrecord for a domain the attacker
controls dns for. Sending a response of NXdomain but having actual DNS
results in the response.

I am wondering if someone has seen a good write up out there?
