ComGuard, a Dubai based leading value added distributor for IT security products and solutions in the Middle East and North Africa region today announced the availability of a patch from BlueCat Networks for its appliance-based DNS and DHCP software solutions that addresses the latest DHCP vulnerability publicised by the Internet Systems Consortium (ISC). BlueCat Networks discovered the vulnerability and was prepared to immediately provide patches to its customers on the same day as the ISC’s public release.

Working with a client, BlueCat Networks was instrumental in identifying and reporting the vulnerability (CVE-2011-4539) to the ISC. The vulnerability found by BlueCat Networks relates to a bug in the DHCP software which could allow an attacker to remotely crash a DHCP server in a Denial of Service (DoS) attack. After discovering the issue, BlueCat Networks worked with the ISC to test and verify a fix to address the vulnerability. BlueCat Networks’ proactive response demonstrates its commitment to security and providing timely patches to critical security vulnerabilities that could put organizations at risk.

“ISC is very appreciative of BlueCat Networks for its efforts in finding and testing this DHCP issue,” said Barry Greene, President of Internet Systems Consortium. “We are committed to identifying and rapidly addressing any security vulnerabilities and look to partners like BlueCat Networks to assist us in meeting the security requirements of our customers and the Internet community at large using our Phased Disclosure Process.”

“Our customers depend on our solutions to deliver business-critical DNS and DHCP core networks services,” said Branko Miskov, Director of Product Management, BlueCat Networks. “Security is a primary focus of our organization and we have a long history of being first to market with patches to address vulnerabilities as they arise. As an early adopter and member of ISC’s ‘Friends of ISC’ program, we are one of only a handful of vendors that work directly with ISC to ensure the ongoing reliability and feature richness of BIND and DHCP.”

Providing a purpose-built platform for DNS, DHCP and IP Address Management, BlueCat Networks solutions include highly secure software that is updated regularly to address new vulnerabilities. With BlueCat Networks’ simple solutions, there is no need for customers to spend time and effort monitoring security vulnerability and OS patches.

Jayadevan K, Senior Vice President, Value Business at ComGuard, said,“BlueCat Networks physical and virtual appliances are deployed at some of the most demanding public and private sector organisations worldwide to improve security, lower costs and increase IT efficiency. BlueCat solutions also allow organizations to securely manage change and growth with unsurpassed scalability and future-ready support for IPv6 and DNSSEC.”
