Description

The dns_to_ldap_dn_escape function in src/ldap_convert.c in bind-dyndb-ldap 1.1.0rc1 and earlier does not properly escape distinguished names (DN) for LDAP queries, which allows remote DNS servers to cause a denial of service (named service hang) via a "$" character in a DN in a DNS query.

Solution(s)

  • oracle-linux-upgrade-bind-dyndb-ldap

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
