K48224824:BIG-IP DNS Cache vulnerability CVE-2018-5532

Security Advisory

Original Publication Date: 19 Jul, 2018

Security Advisory Description

A domain name cached within the DNS Cache of TMM may continue to be resolved
by the cache even after the parent server revokes the record, if the DNS Cache
is receiving a stream of requests for the cached name. (CVE-2018-5532)

Impact

The BIG-IP system may continue to serve responses from the DNS Cache for as
long as the system receives requests for the cached name, even though the
authoritative nameserver removed the name.

Security Advisory Status

F5 Product Development has assigned ID 582773 (BIG-IP) to this vulnerability.
