Debian Bug:

  • 987741

  • 987743

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in BIND, a DNS server implementation.

Greg Kuechle discovered that a malformed incoming IXFR transfer could trigger an assertion failure in named, resulting in denial of service.

Siva Kakarla discovered that named could crash when a DNAME record placed in the ANSWER section during DNAME chasing turned out to be the final answer to a client query.

It was discovered that the SPNEGO implementation used by BIND is prone to a buffer overflow vulnerability. This update switches to use the SPNEGO implementation from the Kerberos libraries.

For the stable distribution Debian 10 "Buster", these problems have been fixed in version 1:9.11.5.P4+dfsg-5.1+deb10u5.

We recommend that you upgrade your bind9 packages.
