CVE-2022-1183: Destroying a TLS session early causes assertion failure
Document version: 2.0
Posting date: 18 May 2022
Program impacted: BIND
Versions affected: BIND 9.18.0 -> 9.18.2 and 9.19.0 of the BIND 9.19 development branch
An assertion failure can be triggered if a TLS connection to a configured http TLS listener with a defined endpoint is destroyed too early.
On vulnerable configurations, the named daemon may, in some circumstances, terminate with an assertion failure. Vulnerable configurations are those that include a reference to
http within the
listen-on statements in their
named.conf. TLS is used by both DNS over TLS (DoT) and DNS over HTTPS (DoH), but configurations using DoT alone are unaffected.
