                             Security Advisory

                    BIND Vulnerabilities and Solutions


Problem Description
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This advisory contains descriptions and solutions for two vulnerabilities
present in current BIND distributions.  These vulnerabilities are actively
being exploited on the Internet.

I.  The usage of predictable IDs in queries and recursed queries allows for
    remote cache corruption.  This allows malicious users to alter domain
    name server caches to change the addresses and hostnames of hosts on the
    internet.

II. A failure to check whether hostname lengths exceed MAXHOSTNAMELEN in
    size.  This results in potential buffer overflows in programs which
    expect the BIND resolver to only return a maximum hostname length of
    MAXHOSTNAMELEN.



                 Problem I.  The usage of predictable ID's
                 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Problem I. - Impact
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Remote root users can poison BIND and Microsoft Windows NT name server
caches by forging UDP packets.  We should note that unlike other well
documented attacks, in this instance it is NOT necessary for the attacker
to take over a DNS server or sniff the target network.


Problem I. - Technical Details
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This particular cache corruption attack requires that the target nameserver
be configured to allow recursion.  Recursion allows a nameserver to handle
requests for zones or domains which it does not serve.  When receiving a
query for a zone or domain which is not served by the name server, the name
server will transmit a query to a nameserver which serves the desired
domain.  Once a response is received from the second nameserver, the first
nameserver sends the response back to the requesting party.

The following attack is outlined in the paper "Addressing weaknesses in the
Domain Name System Protocol" by Christopher Schuba and Eugene Spafford [6].
To the extent of our knowledge, this problem has not been previously
addressed.  The paper also assumes that the attacker has super-user access
to a primary nameserver, here we demonstrate that this is not necessary nor
are source routed packets required.

Using the recursion feature, one can poison the cache on a name server with
the following procedure:


Problem I. - The Players
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

.  HOST.ATTACKER.COM is the attacking host.

.  DNS.ATTACKER.COM is ATTACKER.COM's nameserver, we presume that this is
   the only name server for ATTACKER.COM to simplify the description.

.  DNS.TARGET.COM is the target nameserver which runs BIND.  What we will
   attempt to do is add an A (address) resource record on DNS.TARGET.COM
   that will resolve WWW.SPOOFED.COM to 127.0.0.1.  We are sure that
   WWW.SPOOFED.COM is not cached in DNS.TARGET.COM's DNS cache.

.  DNS.SPOOFED.COM is the nameserver for SPOOFED.COM's domain.  We have
   determined this before the attack begins.  Once again we just presume
   its the only one in order to simplify this description.


Problem I. - The Attack
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A.  First a query is sent to DNS.TARGET.COM asking for the address of
    UNKNOWN.ATTACKER.COM.  Our query has the recursion desired bit set,
    meaning that if the nameserver we are querying has recursion enabled,
    it will query another nameserver with our query (assuming it does not
    have the information cached).

B.  DNS.TARGET.COM will first determine who serves the ATTACKER.COM
    domain, then it will build a query packet and send it to
    DNS.ATTACKER.COM.

C.  We sniff DNS.ATTACKER.COM's local network and retrieve the query packet
    sent by DNS.TARGET.COM to DNS.ATTACKER.COM.  We can then determine
    the query ID (qid0) used by DNS.TARGET.COM.  Chances are that the
    next queries generated by DNS.TARGET.COM will have query IDs that will
    fall in the range [qid0,qid0+N] where N is dependent on the amount of
    queries DNS.TARGET.COM is generating in the period of time on which the
    attack takes place.  N is usually <= 10 for most cases.

D.  Once we have determined what the next query ID generated will be, we
    send a query to DNS.TARGET.COM asking for WWW.SPOOFED.COM's address.

E.  Then we start sending spoofed DNS replies from DNS.SPOOFED.COM,
    telling DNS.TARGET.COM that WWW.SPOOFED.COM is '127.0.0.1'.

F.  If we guessed the query ID used by DNS.TARGET.COM in its recursed
    query and our response is received first, our response will be taken
    as valid and the address will be cached.  Subsequent responses will
    be discarded as duplicates.  We can always send many (N*M) spoofed
    packets with different IDs in the range (qid0,qid0+N] so we will be
    sure that at least one of them will hit DNS.TARGET.COM and have the
    'right' ID. M is a factor dependent of the amount of UDP packets we
    expect to lose on their way to DNS.TARGET.COM.


Problem I. - The Result
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If the attack succeeded, any query to DNS.TARGET.COM asking for
WWW.SPOOFED.COM's address, will get 127.0.0.1 as a response.  Thus,
any user on TARGET.COM's domain will connect to 127.0.0.1 if they try to
contact WWW.SPOOFED.COM.

The usage of 127.0.0.1 in this description is of course for instructional
purposes, any IP address can be used, in particular an attacker could use
its own IP address (BADGUY.COM's IP) so all connections  to 'host' will go
to 'BADGUY'.  The attacker can then 'impersonate' WWW.SPOOFED.COM.  Given
this attack, it is easy to visualize the effects of impersonating a high
traffic FTP distribution site.  This attack can also be used to intercept
email traffic, and bypass address based authentication methods, including
TCP wrappers and firewalls.


Problem I. - Notes
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This attack depends on a few things to succeed:

1. The attacker has complete control of DNS.ATTACKER.COM's network,
   he can both spoof and sniff DNS packets there.  In particular, he can
   sniff DNS packets sent to DNS.ATTACKER.COM.

2. Spoofed DNS responses sent from the attacker to DNS.TARGET.COM must
   be received before the legit response from DNS.SPOOFED.COM.  This is
   very easy to achieve.  In testing we have not yet encountered a situation
   where we could not get our packets to the nameserver first.

3. The name server on DNS.TARGET.COM supports recursion and caches
   responses.  This is common practice.  It should be noted that most
   nameservers allow recursion (unless specifically denied by
   configuration options).  Root name servers, however, do not allow
   recursion.

   If DNS.TARGET.COM caches negative responses as well (NCACHE), a denial
   of service attack can be performed, in this case, spoofed responses sent
   by the attacker will tell DNS.TARGET.COM that WWW.SPOOFED.COM does not
   exist (and be authorative on this).

   The existence of several nameservers for the domains does not alter the
   basic outline of this attack.  The attacker would only need to send DNS
   responses with source addresses of each of SPOOFED.COM's nameservers.
   (N*M*I responses, where I is the number of nameservers).


Problem I. - Systems Affected
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

- - All systems using BIND as their domain name server with recursion
  enabled.

- - Windows NT (server) version 3.51 & 4.0 DNS server.
  Microsoft has been notified and has acknowledged this is a serious
  problem.  No information on a fix is availible.



                      Problem II. Hostname length checking
                      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Problem II. - Impact
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BIND allows passing of hostnames larger than MAXHOSTNAMELEN in size to
programs.  As many programs utilize buffers of size MAXHOSTNAMELEN and
copy the results from a query into these buffers, an overflow can occur.
This can allow an attacker to execute arbitrary commands on a remote
server in a worst case scenario.


Problem II. - Systems Affected
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

All systems running BIND.


Fix Information
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Obtain BIND version 4.9.5-P1.  BIND is availible from ftp.isc.org in
the directory /isc/bind/src.  Patches to solve both problem I and
problem II are included at the end of this advisory.  Once BIND
has been obtained, follow the following procedure:

i.   First remove the patches from this text.  This can be performed by
     removing all text in between the "CUT HERE" lines, and saving it
     to a text file (i.e. /tmp/diffs.txt).

ii.  Perform the following operations to apply the patches:

% gzip -d bind.tar.gz
% mkdir bind
% cd bind
% tar -xvf ../bind.tar
% patch < /tmp/diffs.txt

iii. Rebuild BIND
