Re: On the impact of CVE-2013-2266 (BIND9)

In response to comments on this list from Daniel Franke, describing a
possible exploitation scenario for the CVE-2013-2266 vulnerability, ISC
would like to point out that the vector identified by Mr. Franke is not
the only one possible, and that operators of *ANY* recursive *OR*
authoritative nameservers running an unpatched installation of an
affected version of BIND should consider themselves vulnerable to this
We wish, however, to express agreement with the main point of Mr.
Franke's comment, which is that the required complexity of the exploit
for this vulnerability is not high, and immediate action is recommended
to ensure your nameservers are not at risk.
Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
