For general information regarding FreeBSD Security Advisories,
including descriptions of the fields above, security branches, and the
following sections, please visit <URL:https://security.FreeBSD.org/>.

I.   Background

Unbound is a validating, recursive, and caching DNS resolver.

II.  Problem Description

Malformed answers from upstream name servers can send Unbound into an infinite
loop, resulting in denial of service.  A malicious query can cause a traffic
amplification attack against third party authoritative nameservers.

III. Impact

Denial of service of the affected host, or of third parties via traffic
amplification.

IV.  Workaround

No workaround is available.  Systems not running Unbound are not affected.

V.   Solution

Upgrade your vulnerable system to a supported FreeBSD stable or
release / security branch (releng) dated after the correction date.

Perform one of the following:

1) To update your vulnerable system via a binary patch:

Systems running a RELEASE version of FreeBSD on the i386 or amd64
platforms can be updated via the freebsd-update(8) utility:

# freebsd-update fetch
# freebsd-update install

2) To update your vulnerable system via a source code patch:

The following patches have been verified to apply to the applicable
FreeBSD release branches.

a) Download the relevant patch from the location below, and verify the
detached PGP signature using your PGP utility.

[FreeBSD 12.1]
# fetch https://security.FreeBSD.org/patches/SA-20:19/unbound.12.1.patch
# fetch https://security.FreeBSD.org/patches/SA-20:19/unbound.12.1.patch.asc
# gpg --verify unbound.12.1.patch.asc

[FreeBSD 11.4]
# fetch https://security.FreeBSD.org/patches/SA-20:19/unbound.11.4.patch
# fetch https://security.FreeBSD.org/patches/SA-20:19/unbound.11.4.patch.asc
# gpg --verify unbound.11.4.patch.asc

[FreeBSD 11.3]
# fetch https://security.FreeBSD.org/patches/SA-20:19/unbound.11.3.patch
# fetch https://security.FreeBSD.org/patches/SA-20:19/unbound.11.3.patch.asc
# gpg --verify unbound.11.3.patch.asc

b) Apply the patch.  Execute the following commands as root:

# cd /usr/src
# patch -p0 < /path/to/patch

c) Recompile the operating system using buildworld and installworld as
described in <URL:https://www.FreeBSD.org/handbook/makeworld.html>.

Restart the applicable daemons, or reboot the system.

VI.  Correction details

The following list contains the correction revision numbers for each
affected branch.
