FreeBSD-SA-16:34.bind Security Advisory
The FreeBSD Project

Topic: BIND Remote Denial of Service vulnerability

Category: contrib
Module: bind
Announced: 2016-11-02
Credits: ISC
Affects: FreeBSD 9.x
Corrected: 2016-11-02 05:13:27 UTC (stable/9, 9.3-STABLE)
2016-11-02 07:24:34 UTC (releng/9.3, 9.3-RELEASE-p50)
CVE Name: CVE-2016-8864

For general information regarding FreeBSD Security Advisories,
including descriptions of the fields above, security branches, and the
following sections, please visit <URL:>.

I. Background

BIND 9 is an implementation of the Domain Name System (DNS) protocols.
The named(8) daemon is an Internet Domain Name Server.

II. Problem Description

A defect in BIND’s handling of responses containing a DNAME answer could
cause a resolver to exit after encountering an assertion failure in
db.c or resolver.c.

During processing of a recursive response that contains a DNAME record
in the answer section, BIND could stop executing after encountering an
assertion error in resolver.c.

III. Impact

A remote attacker who could cause a server to make a query deliberately
chosen to trigger the failed assertions could cause named(8) to stop,
resulting in a Denial of Service condition to its clients.

IV. Workaround

No workaround is available, but hosts not running named(8) recursive
servers are not affected.

V. Solution

Perform one of the following:

1) Upgrade your vulnerable system to a supported FreeBSD stable or
release / security branch (releng) dated after the correction date.

The named service has to be restarted after the update. A reboot is
recommended but not required.

2) To update your vulnerable system via a binary patch:

Systems running a RELEASE version of FreeBSD on the i386 or amd64
platforms can be updated via the freebsd-update(8) utility:

# freebsd-update fetch
# freebsd-update install

The named service has to be restarted after the update. A reboot is
recommended but not required.

3) To update your vulnerable system via a source code patch:

The following patches have been verified to apply to the applicable
FreeBSD release branches.

a) Download the relevant patch from the location below, and verify the
detached PGP signature using your PGP utility.

# fetch
# fetch
# gpg –verify bind.patch.asc

b) Apply the patch. Execute the following commands as root:

# cd /usr/src
# patch < /path/to/patch

c) Recompile the operating system using buildworld and installworld as
described in <URL:>.

Restart the named service, or reboot the system.

VI. Correction details

The following list contains the correction revision numbers for each
affected branch.

Branch/path Revision
– ————————————————————————-
stable/9/ r308193
releng/9.3/ r308205
– ————————————————————————-

To see which files were modified by a particular revision, run the
following command, replacing NNNNNN with the revision number, on a
machine with Subversion installed:

# svn diff -cNNNNNN –summarize svn://

Or visit the following URL, replacing NNNNNN with the revision number:
