Infoblox NIOS and BloxOne Products are not vulnerable to CVE-2022-0667

Mar 16, 2022Knowledge
 

Summary:

On March 16th, 2022 ISC announced a new security issue encountered  in BIND 9.18.0 as CVE-2022-0667.

 

Overview:

We refactored the RFC 8198 Aggressive Use of DNSSEC-Validated Cache feature (synth-from-dnssec) for the new BIND 9.18.0 stable release, and changed the default so that is now automatically enabled for dnssec-validating resolvers. Subsequently it was found that repeated patterns of specific queries to servers with this feature enabled could cause an INSIST failure in query.c:query_dname which causes named to terminate unexpectedly.

The vulnerability affects BIND resolvers running 9.18.0 that have both `dnssec-validation` and `synth-from-dnssec` enabled. (Note that `dnssec-validation auto;` is the default setting unless configured otherwise in `named.conf` and that enabling `dnssec-validation` automatically enables `synth-from-dnssec` unless explicitly disabled).

 

Impact:

When a vulnerable version of named receives a series of specific queries, the named process will eventually terminate due to a failed assertion check.
