Rule:

--
Sid:
260

--
Summary:
This event is generated by an attempted buffer overflow associated with incorrect validation of NXT records.

--
Impact:
Severe. The DNS server can be compromised allowing the attacker access with the privileges of the user running BIND.  This attack is sometimes referred to as ADMROCKS because a subdirectory named ADMROCKS is placed in the directory associated with BIND software. 

--

Improper validation of DNS NXT records may allow an attacker to perform a buffer overflow.  This can allow execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running BIND.

--
Affected Systems:
BIND versions 8.2 up to, but not including, 8.2.2.

--
Attack Scenarios:
An attacker can launch this exploit to gain remote access to the DNS server.

--
Ease of Attack:
Simple.  Code exists to exploit the buffer overflow.

--
False Positives:
None Known

--
False Negatives:

--
Corrective Action:
Upgrade to a version of BIND 8.2.2, or greater or patch vulnerable versions of BIND.
