NetBSD 4.0: affected prior to 20110716
pkgsrc: net/bind96, net/bind97 and net/bind98
packages prior to 20110706
Severity: Denial of Service
Fixed: NetBSD-current: Jul 6th, 2011

pkgsrc net/bind96: bind-184.108.40.206.ESV4pl3 corrects this issue
pkgsrc net/bind97: bind-9.7.3pl3 corrects this issue
pkgsrc net/bind98: bind-9.8.0pl4 corrects this issue
Please note that NetBSD releases prior to 4.0 are no longer supported.
It is recommended that all users upgrade to a supported release.
Packets with rrtype zero can cause named to crash.
This vulnerability has been assigned CVE-2011-2464.
A defect in the affected BIND 9 versions allows an attacker to remotely
cause the "named" process to exit by sending a specially crafted packet.
This defect affects both recursive and authoritative servers.
The code location of the defect makes it impossible to protect BIND
using ACLs configured within named.conf or by disabling any features
at compile-time or run-time.
A remote attacker would need to be able to send a specially crafted packet
directly to a server running a vulnerable version of BIND.
There is also the potential for an indirect attack via malware that is
inadvertently installed and run, where infected machines have direct
access to an organization's nameservers.
Note: CVE-2011-2465 is also fixed with this update, CVE-2011-0414,
CVE-2011-1907 and CVE-2011-1910 have been fixed previously but weren't
of sufficient impact to warrant an advisory.
Solutions and Workarounds
We suggest fixing this vulnerability by using the current net/bind98 or
net/bind97 pkgsrc package instead of the in-system bind until the entire
system can be updated (eg to the next security/critical release, or a
binary snapshot from http://nyftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD-daily/ from past
the fix date).
Thanks to the Internet Systems Consortium for reporting this
vulnerability and providing fixed versions.
