ISC updates critical DoS bug in BIND DNS software

The Internet Systems Consortium (ISC) patched two vulnerabilities in domain name system software BIND, one of which was referred to as a “critical error condition” in the software.

BIND is the most commonly deployed DNS server on the internet, translating domain names into IP addresses so that users can access applications and remote servers without having to track IP addresses. BIND is the de facto standard on Linux and other Unix-based machines; a vulnerability in the software affects a large number of servers and applications.

The latest BIND update, versions 9.9.9-P3, 9.10.4-P3, and 9.11.0rc3, patched a denial-of-service flaw (CVE-2016-2776) that could be exploited using specially crafted DNS request packets. The issue was uncovered internally by ISC and affects all servers that can receive request packets from any source, ISC said in its advisory. Affected versions include 9.0.x to 9.8.x, 9.9.0 to 9.9.9-P2, 9.9.3-S1 to 9.9.9-S3, 9.10.0 to 9.10.4-P2, and 9.11.0a1 to 9.11.0rc1.

Google dev tools beef up Content Security Policy defenses

Cross-site scripting attacks – the ability to inject unauthorized scripts into web applications – is pervasive, and even though developers have plenty of tools and technologies that can detect and fix XSS flaws, the attacks still keep coming.

Google’s latest developer tools, CSP Evaluator and CSP Mitigator, tackle the XSS problem from a different angle, by shoring up web application defenses to make it harder to execute those malicious scripts.

XSS is among the most common security threats plaguing web applications, and aren’t always the result of sloppy or lazy coding. Developers can avoid mistakes which lead to XSS with modern web technologies such as strict contextual auto-escaping or use automated scanners to catch vulnerabilities during testing.
