USN-5126-1: Bind vulnerability

28 October 2021

Bind could be made to consume resources if it received specially crafted network traffic.



  • bind9 - Internet Domain Name Server


Kishore Kumar Kothapalli discovered that Bind incorrectly handled the lame
cache when processing responses. A remote attacker could possibly use this
issue to cause Bind to consume resources, resulting in a denial of service.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 21.10
Ubuntu 21.04
Ubuntu 20.04
Ubuntu 18.04

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
