    Arch Linux Security Advisory ASA-202010-6
    =========================================
    
    Severity: High
    Date    : 2020-10-18
    CVE-ID  : CVE-2020-25829
    Package : powerdns-recursor
    Type    : denial of service
    Remote  : Yes
    Link    : https://security.archlinux.org/AVG-1243
    
    Summary
    =======
    
    The package powerdns-recursor before version 4.3.5-1 is vulnerable to
    denial of service.
    
    Resolution
    ==========
    
    Upgrade to 4.3.5-1.
    
    # pacman -Syu "powerdns-recursor>=4.3.5-1"
    
    The problem has been fixed upstream in version 4.3.5.
    
    Workaround
    ==========
    
    None.
    
    Description
    ===========
    
    An issue has been found in PowerDNS Recursor before 4.3.5 where a
    remote attacker can cause the cached records for a given name to be
    updated to the ‘Bogus’ DNSSEC validation state, instead of their actual
    DNSSEC ‘Secure’ state, via a DNS ANY query. This results in a denial of
    service for installations that always validate (dnssec=validate) and
    for clients requesting validation when on-demand validation is enabled
    (dnssec=process).
    
    Impact
    ======
    
    A remote attacker can deny DNSSEC validation by updating the state of
    cached entries.
