DescriptionOff-by-one error in the inet_network function in libbind in ISC BIND 9.4.2 and earlier, as used in libc in FreeBSD 6.2 through 7.0-PRERELEASE, allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via crafted input that triggers memory corruption.

Notes

[sarge] - bind <no-dsa> (applications will use inet_network in libc)
[etch] - bind <no-dsa> (applications will use inet_network in libc)
- bind9 <not-affected> (does not build libbind)
The fix for the BIND-based resolver in GNU libc was made in 2000.
libbind9 is distinct code, not related to the old libbind.
