CVE-2017-3142: An error in TSIG authentication can permit unauthorized
zone transfers

Author: Michael McNally

Reference Number: AA-01504

Created: 2017-06-29 19:30

Last Updated: 2017-06-29 20:31

An attacker may be able to circumvent TSIG authentication of AXFR and
NOTIFY requests.

CVE:
CVE-2017-3142

Document Version:
2.0

Posting date:
29 June 2017

Program Impacted:
BIND

Versions affected:
9.4.0->9.8.8, 9.9.0->9.9.10-P1, 9.10.0->9.10.5-P1, 9.11.0->9.11.1-P1,
9.9.3-S1->9.9.10-S2, 9.10.5-S1->9.10.5-S2

Severity:
Medium

Exploitable:
Remotely

Description:

An attacker who is able to send and receive messages to an authoritative
DNS server and who has knowledge of a valid TSIG key name may be able to
circumvent TSIG authentication of AXFR requests via a carefully constructed
request packet.  A server that relies solely on TSIG keys for protection
with no other ACL protection could be manipulated into:

    providing an AXFR of a zone to an unauthorized recipient
    accepting bogus NOTIFY packets

Impact:

    An unauthorized AXFR (full zone transfer) permits an attacker to view
    the entire contents of a zone.  Protection of zone contents is often
    a commercial or business requirement.
    If accepted, a NOTIFY sets the zone refresh interval to 'now'.  If there
    is not already a refresh cycle in progress then named will initiate
    one by asking for the SOA RR from its list of masters.  If there
    is already a refresh cycle in progress, then named will queue the
    new refresh request.  If there is already a queued refresh request,
    the new NOTIFY will be discarded. Bogus notifications can't be used
    to force a zone transfer from a malicious server, but could trigger
    a high rate of zone refresh cycles.

CVSS Score:  5.3

CVSS Vector:  CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:N/A:N

https://www.first.org/cvss/calculator/3.0#CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:N/A:N

Workarounds:

The effects of this vulnerability can be mitigated by using Access
Control Lists (ACLs) that require both address range validation
and use of TSIG authentication in conjunction.  For information on
how to configure this type of compound authentication control, please see:
https://kb.isc.org/article/AA-00723/0/Using-Access-Control-Lists-ACLs-with-both-addresses-and-keys.html.
(Note that this technique may not be effective against bogus NOTIFY packets
if an attacker is able to reach the target DNS server whilst using a
spoofed sending address).

Active exploits:

No known active exploits but a similar issue was announced publicly on 23
June 2017 by another DNS server software provider.

Solution:  Upgrade to the patched release most closely related
to your current version of BIND. These can all be downloaded from
http://www.isc.org/downloads.

    BIND 9 version 9.9.10-P2
    BIND 9 version 9.10.5-P2

CVE-2017-3143: An error in TSIG authentication can permit unauthorized
dynamic updates

Author: Michael McNally

Reference Number: AA-01503

Created: 2017-06-29 19:30

Last Updated: 2017-07-06 21:07

An attacker may be able to forge a valid TSIG or signature for a dynamic
update.

CVE:
CVE-2017-3143

Document Version:
2.0

Posting date:
29 June 2017

Program Impacted:
BIND

Versions affected:
9.4.0->9.8.8, 9.9.0->9.9.10-P1, 9.10.0->9.10.5-P1, 9.11.0->9.11.1-P1,
9.9.3-S1->9.9.10-S2, 9.10.5-S1->9.10.5-S2

Severity:
High

Exploitable:
Remotely

Description:
An attacker who is able to send and receive messages to an authoritative
DNS server and who has knowledge of a valid TSIG key name for the zone
and service being targeted may be able to manipulate BIND into accepting
an unauthorized dynamic update.

Impact:

A server that relies solely on TSIG keys with no other address-based ACL
protection could be vulnerable to malicious zone content manipulation
using this technique.

Note that the local update policy (configured with "update-policy local;"
in named.conf) implicitly defines a key with a known key name (local-ddns)
and default algorithm and no IP-based access controls on the zone updates.
In conjunction with this failure in TSIG verification, "update-policy local"
is potentially very dangerous.

CVSS Score:  7.5

CVSS Vector:  CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:H/A:N

For more information on the Common Vulnerability Scoring System
and to obtain your specific environmental score please visit:
https://www.first.org/cvss/calculator/3.0#CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:H/A:N

Workarounds:

The effects of this vulnerability can be mitigated by using Access
Control Lists (ACLs) that require both address range validation and
use of TSIG authentication in conjunction.  For information on how to
configure this type of compound authentication control, please see:
https://kb.isc.org/article/AA-00723/0/Using-Access-Control-Lists-ACLs-with-both-addresses-and-keys.html.

Administrators who have made use of named.conf option "update-policy
local;" should patch their servers as soon as possible and if this is not
possible should replace the update-policy configuration statement with an
allow-update statement implementing the key requirement for updates but
additionally imposing an IP ACL limitation, e.g.:

allow-update { !{ !localhost; }; key local-ddns; };

Active exploits:

No known active exploits but a similar issue was announced publicly on 23
June 2017 by another DNS server software provider.
