-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 SUPPORT COMMUNICATION - SECURITY BULLETIN Document ID: c00595837 Version: 3 HPSBTU02095 SSRT051007 rev.3 - HP Tru64 UNIX 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: 2006-04-18 Last Updated: 2006-04-19 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 Tru64 UNIX operating system running DNS BIND4 or BIND8 when 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. The following supported versions of HP Tru64 UNIX are affected: * HP Tru64 UNIX 5.1B-3 * HP Tru64 UNIX 5.1B-2/PK4 * HP Tru64 UNIX 5.1A PK6 * HP Tru64 UNIX 4.0G PK4 * HP Tru64 UNIX 4.0F PK8 BACKGROUND The Internet Software Consortium's (isc.org) Berkeley Internet Name Domain (BIND) is a popular DNS server used on many operating systems including Tru64 UNIX. - From the Internet Software Consortium's web site 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. RESOLUTION HP has released the following Early Release Patch kits (ERPs) publicly for use by any customer. The ERP kits use dupatch to install and will not install over any Customer Specific Patches (CSPs) that have file intersections with the ERP. Note: The ERP kits binaries are the same as Revision 2 of this bulletin except for the addition of nslookup and nslookup manpage which support internationalization (I18N). The ERP kits distribute the following items: * The BIND9 release * BIND9 manpages * /usr/bin/nslookup * nslookup manpage * Upgraded bindconfig application to support BIND9 (5.1B-3, 5.1B-2/PK4, and 5.1A PK6 only) HP Tru64 UNIX Version 5.1B-3 ERP Kit Location: http://www.itrc.hp.com/service/patch/patchDetail.do? patchid=T64KIT1000505-V51BB26-ES-20060406 Name: T64KIT1000505-V51BB26-ES-20060406 MD5 Checksum: 5298ff7f96d97339b13b0354705a3625 HP Tru64 UNIX Version 5.1B-2/PK4 ERP Kit Location: http://www.itrc.hp.com/service/patch/patchDetail.do? patchid=T64KIT1000504-V51BB25-ES-20060406 Name: T64KIT1000504-V51BB25-ES-20060406 MD5 Checksum: 185b66169f0d74a7ac5edea5bbecbf11 HP Tru64 UNIX Version 5.1A PK6 ERP Kit Location: http://www.itrc.hp.com/service/patch/patchDetail.do? patchid=T64KIT1000519-V51AB24-ES-20060410 Name: T64KIT1000519-V51AB24-ES-20060410 MD5 Checksum: 00a95acde76a408842f6c49f81d8d605 HP Tru64 UNIX Version 4.0G PK4 ERP Kit Location: http://www.itrc.hp.com/service/patch/patchDetail.do? patchid=T64KIT1000521-V40GB22-ES-20060410 Name: T64KIT1000521-V40GB22-ES-20060410 MD5 Checksum: ab3cfd38b91a884b02ee2f263b0dd5b0 HP Tru64 UNIX Version 4.0F PK8 ERP Kit Location: http://www.itrc.hp.com/service/patch/patchDetail.do? patchid=DUXKIT1000520-V40FB22-ES-20060410 Name: DUXKIT1000520-V40FB22-ES-20060410 MD5 Checksum: 2cf4adb87454f2c391afa126f0805fd0 HISTORY Version: 1 (rev.1) 25 January 2006 Initial release Version: 2 (rev.2) 6 February 2006 Added additional information Version: 3 (rev.3) 18 April 2006 Updated information, nslookup was added supporting internationalization (I18N) Support: For further information, contact normal HP Services support channel.
