The Berkeley Internet Name Domain (BIND) is an implementation of the Domain Name System (DNS) protocols. BIND includes a DNS server (named); a resolver library (routines for applications to use when interfacing with DNS); and tools for verifying that the DNS server is operating correctly.
It was discovered that named did not invalidate previously cached RRSIG records when adding an NCACHE record for the same entry to the cache. A remote attacker allowed to send recursive DNS queries to named could use this flaw to crash named. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2010-3613 to this issue.
A flaw was found in the DNSSEC validation code in named. If named had multiple trust anchors configured for a zone, a response to a request for a record in that zone with a bad signature could cause named to crash. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2010-3762 to this issue.
It was discovered that, in certain cases, named did not properly perform DNSSEC validation of an NS RRset for zones in the middle of a DNSKEY algorithm rollover. This flaw could cause the validator to incorrectly determine that the zone is insecure and not protected by DNSSEC. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2010-3614 to this issue.

Recommended Actions for System Products:
Avaya strongly recommends that customers follow networking and security best practices by implementing firewalls, ACLs, physical security or other appropriate access restrictions. Though Avaya believes such restrictions should always be in place; risk to Avaya's product and the surrounding network from this potential vulnerability may be mitigated by ensuring these practices are implemented until such time as a product update is available or the recommended action is applied. Further restrictions as deemed necessary based on the customer's security policies may be required during this interim period.
When determining risk, Avaya takes into account many factors as outlined by Avaya's Security Vulnerability Classification Policy. The following table describes factors that mitigate the risk of specific vulnerabilities for the listed affected Avaya products:
|CM, IQ, PS, SMGR, SP and VP are rated a low risk due to the bind service not running or configured by default.
Only the bind-libs and bind-utils packages are installed on these products.
SM is rated a low risk due to the bind server listening only on the local server which doesn't allow remote queries.
Avaya software-only products operate on general-purpose operating systems. Occasionally vulnerabilities may be discovered in the underlying operating system or applications that come with the operating system. These vulnerabilities often do not impact the software-only product directly but may threaten the integrity of the underlying platform.
In the case of this advisory Avaya software-only products are not affected by the vulnerability directly but the underlying Linux platform may be. Customers should determine on which Linux operating system the product was installed and then follow that vendor's guidance.
