Patching Infoblox DNS/DHCP

September 15, 2012 - 4:00am - 5:00am

On September 12, 2012, the Internet Systems Consortium (ISC) announced vulnerabilities in their DNS and DHCP servers: (DNS) A specially crafted Resource Record could cause names to terminate. (DHCP) Reducing the expiration time for an IPv6 lease may cause the server to crash. Infoblox NIOS releases are affected by these ISC vulnerabilities. Although Infoblox NIOS monitoring facilitates automatic recovery of DNS and DHCP services in most cases, Infoblox strongly recommends applying security patches.

Who's Affected

All STAGEnet users, excluding Higher Education. Users may notice internet access come and go during this outage. It should be fairly limited due to the High Availability configuration of the system.
