                   Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Moderate: bind security and enhancement update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2013:0550-01
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2013-0550.html

CVE Names:         CVE-2012-5689 
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

Updated bind packages that fix one security issue and add one enhancement
are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate
security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in
the References section.

3. Description:

The Berkeley Internet Name Domain (BIND) is an implementation of the
Domain Name System (DNS) protocols. BIND includes a DNS server (named); a
resolver library (routines for applications to use when interfacing with
DNS); and tools for verifying that the DNS server is operating correctly.
DNS64 is used to automatically generate DNS records so IPv6 based clients
can access IPv4 systems through a NAT64 server.

A flaw was found in the DNS64 implementation in BIND when using Response
Policy Zones (RPZ). If a remote attacker sent a specially-crafted query to
a named server that is using RPZ rewrite rules, named could exit
unexpectedly with an assertion failure. Note that DNS64 support is not
enabled by default. (CVE-2012-5689)

This update also adds the following enhancement:

* Previously, it was impossible to configure the the maximum number of
responses sent per second to one client. This allowed remote attackers to
conduct traffic amplification attacks using DNS queries with spoofed source
IP addresses. With this update, it is possible to use the new "rate-limit"
configuration option in named.conf and configure the maximum number of
queries which the server responds to. Refer to the BIND documentation for
more details about the "rate-limit" option. (BZ#906312)

All bind users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain patches to correct this issue and add this enhancement. After
installing the update, the BIND daemon (named) will be restarted
automatically.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/articles/11258

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

903417 - CVE-2012-5689 bind: denial of service when processing queries and with both DNS64 and RPZ enabled
906312 - bind: Backport Response Rate Limiting (DNS RRL) patch into Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6
