-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 SUPPORT COMMUNICATION - SECURITY BULLETIN Document ID: c00599840 Version: 2 HPSBUX02097 SSRT051045 rev.2 - HP-UX Running DNS BIND4/BIND8 as Forwarders: Remote Unauthorized Privileged Access NOTICE: The information in this Security Bulletin should be acted upon as soon as possible. Release Date: 2006-02-06 Last Updated: 2006-02-14 Potential Security Impact: Remote Unauthorized Privileged Access Source: Hewlett-Packard Company, HP Software Security Response Team VULNERABILITY SUMMARY A potential vulnerability has been identified with the HP-UX operating system running DNS BIND4 or BIND8 configured as forwarders. The vulnerability could be exploited remotely to gain unauthorized privileged access to the DNS clients. References: CVE-2006-0527 SUPPORTED SOFTWARE VERSIONS*: ONLY impacted versions are listed. Servers running HP-UX releases B.11.00, B.11.11 running BIND4 or BIND8. BACKGROUND Internet Software Consortium's Berkeley Internet Name Domain (BIND) is a popular DNS server used on many operating systems including HP-UX. - From the Internet Software Consortium's website http://www.isc.org: BIND4/BIND8 Unsuitable for Forwarder Use If a nameserver -- any nameservEr, whether BIND or otherwise -- is configured to use "forwarders", then none of the target forwarders can be running BIND4 or BIND8. Upgrade all nameservers used as "forwarders" to BIND9. There is a current, wide scale Kashpureff-style DNS cache corruption attack which depends on BIND4 and BIND8 as "forwarders" targets. Due to architectural limitations BIND4/BIND8 will never be suitable for use as a forwarder target. BIND9 should be used instead. To determine if a system has an affected version, search the output of "swlist -a revision -l fileset" for one of the filesets listed below. For affected systems verify that the recommended action has been taken. AFFECTED VERSIONS HP-UX B.11.00 ============= bind.INETSVCS-RUN upgrade_bind812.INETSVCS-RUN InternetSrvcs.INETSVCS-RUN BINDv812.INETSVCS-BIND action: if running named, use only BIND9 HP-UX B.11.11 ============= bind.INETSVCS-RUN InternetSrvcs.INETSVCS-RUN action: if running named, use only BIND9 END AFFECTED VERSIONS RESOLUTION HP has made the following available to resolve this issue. HP-UX B.11.00 BIND 9.2.0 B.11.00.01.004 or subsequent available from http://software.hp.com HP-UX B.11.11 BIND 9.2.0 B.11.11.01.006 or subsequent available from http://software.hp.com MANUAL ACTIONS: Yes - NonUpdate HP-UX B.11.00 and B.11.11 - Install BIND9.2.0 or subsequent PRODUCT SPECIFIC INFORMATION HP-UX Security Patch Check: Security Patch Check revision B.02.00 analyzes all HP-issued Security Bulletins to provide a subset of recommended actions that potentially affect a specific HP-UX system.
