CVE: CVE-2017-13704 , CVE-2017-14491 , CVE-2017-14492 , CVE-2017-14493 , CVE-2017-14494 , CVE-2017-14495 , CVE-2017-14496

Description

CVE-2017-13704: Dnsmasq could be made to crash on a large DNS query. A
DNS query received by UDP which exceeds 512 bytes (or the EDNS0 packet
size, if different.) is enough to cause SIGSEGV.

CVE-2017-14491: 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-2017-14492: 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-2017-14493: 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-2017-14494: 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-2017-14495: A memory exhaustion flaw was found in dnsmasq in the
EDNS0 code. An attacker could send crafted DNS packets which would
trigger memory allocations which would never be freed, leading to
unbounded memory consumption and eventually a crash. This issue only
affected configurations using one of the options: add-mac, add-cpe-id,
or add-subnet.

CVE-2017-14496: An integer underflow flaw leading to a buffer over-read
was found in dnsmasq in the EDNS0 code. An attacker could send crafted
DNS packets to dnsmasq which would cause it to crash. This issue only
affected configurations using one of the options: add-mac, add-cpe-id,
or add-subnet.
