CVE-2020-8617

Priority
Description
Using a specially-crafted message, an attacker may potentially cause a BIND
server to reach an inconsistent state if the attacker knows (or
successfully guesses) the name of a TSIG key used by the server. Since
BIND, by default, configures a local session key even on servers whose
configuration does not otherwise make use of it, almost all current BIND
servers are vulnerable. In releases of BIND dating from March 2018 and
after, an assertion check in tsig.c detects this inconsistent state and
deliberately exits. Prior to the introduction of the check the server would
continue operating in an inconsistent state, with potentially harmful
results.
