Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-2837-01 - The dnsmasq packages contain Dnsmasq, a lightweight DNS forwarder and DHCP server. Security Fix: A heap buffer overflow was found in dnsmasq in the code responsible for building DNS replies. An attacker could send crafted DNS packets to dnsmasq which would cause it to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code. A heap buffer overflow was discovered in dnsmasq in the IPv6 router advertisement handling code. An attacker on the local network segment could send crafted RAs to dnsmasq which would cause it to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code. This issue only affected configurations using one of these options: enable-ra, ra-only, slaac, ra-names, ra-advrouter, or ra-stateless.

3. Description:

The dnsmasq packages contain Dnsmasq, a lightweight DNS (Domain Name
Server) forwarder and DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server.

Security Fix(es):

* A heap buffer overflow was found in dnsmasq in the code responsible for
building DNS replies. An attacker could send crafted DNS packets to dnsmasq
which would cause it to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2017-14491)

* A heap buffer overflow was discovered in dnsmasq in the IPv6 router
advertisement (RA) handling code. An attacker on the local network segment
could send crafted RAs to dnsmasq which would cause it to crash or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code. This issue only affected
configurations using one of these options: enable-ra, ra-only, slaac,
ra-names, ra-advrouter, or ra-stateless. (CVE-2017-14492)

* A stack buffer overflow was found in dnsmasq in the DHCPv6 code. An
attacker on the local network could send a crafted DHCPv6 request to
dnsmasq which would cause it to a crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary
code. (CVE-2017-14493)

* An information leak was found in dnsmasq in the DHCPv6 relay code. An
attacker on the local network could send crafted DHCPv6 packets to dnsmasq
causing it to forward the contents of process memory, potentially leaking
sensitive data. (CVE-2017-14494)

Red Hat would like to thank Felix Wilhelm (Google Security Team), Fermin J.
Serna (Google Security Team), Gabriel Campana (Google Security Team), Kevin
Hamacher (Google Security Team), and Ron Bowes (Google Security Team) for
reporting these issues.
