LIN1018-2555 : Security Advisory - bind - CVE-2018-5741

Created: Oct 7, 2018    Updated: Aug 23, 2021
Resolved Date: Aug 23, 2021
Found In Version: unknown
Severity: Standard
Applicable for: Wind River Linux LTS 18
Component/s: Userspace

Description

In order to provide fine-grained controls over the ability to use Dynamic DNS (DDNS) to update records in a zone, BIND provides a feature called update-policy. Various rules can be configured to limit the types of updates that can be performed by a client, depending on the key used when sending the update request. Unfortunately some rule types were not initially documented, and when documentation for them was added to the Administrator Reference Manual (ARM) in change #3112, the language that was added to the ARM at that time incorrectly described the behavior of two rule types, krb5-subdomain and ms-subdomain. This incorrect documentation could mislead operators into believing that policies they had configured were more restrictive than they actually were.
