Apache Traffic Server cache poisoning
|apache-traffic-cache-poisoing (61721)||Medium Risk|
Apache Traffic Server could allow a remote attacker to poison the DNS cache, caused by the improper randomization of the DNS transaction ID and the source port number. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to manipulate cache data and perform DNS Cache Poisoning.
Upgrade to the latest version of Traffic Server (2.0.1 or later), available from the Apache Web site. See References.

- CVE-2010-2952: Apache Traffic Server before 2.0.1, and 2.1.x before 2.1.2-unstable, does not properly choose DNS source ports and transaction IDs, and does not properly use DNS query fields to validate responses, which makes it easier for man-in-the-middle attackers to poison the internal DNS cache via a crafted response.
