K74009656:BIND vulnerability CVE-2018-5743

Security Advisory

Original Publication Date: 25 Apr, 2019

Latest   Publication Date: 03 Jul, 2019

Security Advisory Description

** RESERVED ** This candidate has been reserved by an organization or
individual that will use it when announcing a new security problem. When the
candidate has been publicized, the details for this candidate will be provided.
(CVE-2018-5743)

By design, BIND is intended to limit the number of TCP clients that can be
connected at any given time. The number of allowed connections is a tunable
parameter which, if unset, defaults to a conservative value for most servers.
Unfortunately, the code which was intended to limit the number of simultaneous
connections contains an error which can be exploited to grow the number of
simultaneous connections beyond this limit.

Impact

BIG-IP / BIG-IQ / Enterprise Manager / F5 iWorkflow

An attacker may exhaust file descriptors available to the named process; as a
result, network connections and the management of log files or zone journal
files may be affected. In BIG-IQ / Enterprise Manager / F5 iWorkflow standard
and default configurations, exposure is limited to localhost, and there is no
remote exposure.

Traffix SDC

There is no impact; this F5 product is not affected by this vulnerability.

Security Advisory Status

F5 Product Development has assigned ID 757023 (BIG-IP), ID 758914 (BIG-IQ), and
ID 758915 (F5 iWorkflow) to this vulnerability. Additionally, F5 iHealth may
list Heuristic H74009656 on the Diagnostics > Identified > High page.
