Security Advisory Description

BIND was improperly sequencing cleanup operations on upstream recursion fetch
contexts, leading in some cases to a use-after-free error that can trigger an
assertion failure and crash in named. (CVE-2017-3145)

Impact

BIG-IP

A remote attacker can use this flaw to make named, acting as a Domain Name
System Security Extensions (DNSSEC) validating resolver, exit unexpectedly with
an assertion failure by way of a specially crafted DNS request.

This vulnerability affects BIND only when configured as a recursive resolver
with DNSSEC validation enabled. That mode of operation is not present in any
default configuration but can be enabled.

ARX, Enterprise Manager, BIG-IQ, F5 iWorkflow, LineRate, and Traffix

There is no impact; these F5 products are not affected by this vulnerability.

Security Advisory Status

F5 Product Development has assigned ID 701359 (BIG-IP) to this vulnerability.
Additionally, BIG-IP iHealth may list Heuristic H08613310 on the Diagnostics >
Identified > Medium page.

To determine if your product and version have been evaluated for this
vulnerability, refer to the Applies to (see versions) box. To determine if your
release is known to be vulnerable, the components or features that are affected
by the vulnerability, and for information about releases or hotfixes that
address the vulnerability, refer to the following table.

Security Advisory Recommended Actions

If you are running a version listed in the Versions known to be vulnerable
column, you can eliminate this vulnerability by upgrading to a version listed
in the Fixes introduced in column. If the table lists only an older version
than what you are currently running, or does not list a non-vulnerable version,
then no upgrade candidate currently exists.

Mitigation

If you require DNSSEC validation, there is no mitigation for this issue.
However, if you have manually enabled the DNSSEC validation feature in the BIND
configuration but do not require DNSSEC validation, you can mitigate this
vulnerability by disabling/removing this feature in/from the BIND
configuration. For more information about BIND's DNSSEC validation, refer to
the official BIND DNSSEC Guide from Internet Systems Consortium (ISC).
