==========================================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-5732-1
November 17, 2022

unbound vulnerability
==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 22.10
- Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

Summary:

Unbound could be made to stop responding if it received specially crafted
network traffic.

Software Description:
- unbound: validating, recursive, caching DNS resolver

Details:

It was discovered that Unbound incorrectly handled delegations with a large
number of non-responsive nameservers. A remote attacker could possibly use
this issue to cause Unbound to consume resources, leading to a denial of
service.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 22.10:
libunbound8 1.16.2-1ubuntu0.1
unbound 1.16.2-1ubuntu0.1
