Key Security, Maintenance, and Features Releases


Security Updates

ISC Bind 9.16.12
When tkey-gssapi-keytab or tkey-gssapi-credential was configured, a specially crafted GSS-TSIG query could cause a buffer overflow in the ISC implementation of SPNEGO (a protocol enabling negotiation of the security mechanism to use for GSSAPI authentication). This flaw could be exploited to crash named. Theoretically, it also enabled remote code execution, but achieving the latter is very difficult in real-world conditions. (CVE-2020-8625)
This vulnerability was responsibly reported to us as ZDI-CAN-12302 by Trend Micro Zero Day Initiative. [GL #2354]
