Thanks Michael!
 I guess 'ISC is working on determining the ultimate cause by which a
record with this particular inconsistency is cached' is the part I'm
interested in reading about and there are no details yet..

Hello list,
I am wondering if anyone has more details on the bind9 DoS that just
came
out? (CVE-2011-4313) from what I can tell it appears a negative cached
DNS
object with a valid RR response associated with it(which shouldn't
exist)
will cause a vulnerabile bind9 server to crash.

See lines 1890 - 1896 of query.c
1890         if (result == DNS_R_NCACHENXRRSET) {
1891                 dns_rdataset_disassociate(rdataset);
1892                 /*
1893                  * Negative cache entries don't have sigrdatasets.
1894                  */
1895                 INSIST(! dns_rdataset_isassociated(sigrdataset));
1896         }


Since allowing recursive queries must be enabled for this to work the
attacker  must force a vulnerable dns server to query a malicous DNS
server by asking it to look up an NXrecord for a domain the attacker
controls dns for.  Sending a response of NXdomain but having actual DNS
results in the response.

I am wondering if someone has seen a good write up out there?

Thanks
