Description

Details for this vulnerability have not been published by NIST at this point. Descriptions from software vendor advisories for this issue are provided below.

From VID-5B72B1FF-877C-11EB-BD4F-2F1D57DAFE46:

Simon Kelley reports:

[In configurations where the forwarding server address contains an @

character for specifying a sending interface or source address, the]

random source port behavior was disabled, making cache poisoning

attacks possible.

This only affects configurations of the form server=1.1.1.1@em0 or

server=1.1.1.1@192.0.2.1, i. e. those that specify an interface to

send through, or an IP address to send from, or use together with

NetworkManager.
