Do we have any idea when this will be fixed? Most of my users used to get away with the DNS leakage and it was "only" a security problem but stuff actually worked. Then the NM and other updates were shipped, we set ipv4.dns-priority=-1 and ipv4.dns-search=~. and it all worked fine. Then the NM update was pulled, and new installations aren't working at all, even if we don't set the DNS config as described. There's nothing that works for us except "dig out the package that has now been unpublished, and install that".
An ETA for having this properly working again would be very much appreciated. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Touch seeded packages, which is subscribed to systemd in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1754671 Title: Full-tunnel VPN DNS leakage regression Status in NetworkManager: Fix Released Status in network-manager package in Ubuntu: Fix Released Status in systemd package in Ubuntu: Fix Released Status in network-manager source package in Xenial: New Status in systemd source package in Xenial: Invalid Status in network-manager source package in Bionic: In Progress Status in systemd source package in Bionic: Fix Released Status in network-manager source package in Cosmic: Won't Fix Status in systemd source package in Cosmic: Fix Released Bug description: [Impact] When using a VPN the DNS requests might still be sent to a DNS server outside the VPN when they should not [Test case] 1) Set up a VPN with split tunneling: a) Configure VPN normally (set up remote host, any ports and options needed for the VPN to work) b) Under the IPv4 tab: enable "Use this connection only for the resources on its network". c) Under the IPv6 tab: enable "Use this connection only for the resources on its network". 2) Connect to the VPN. 3) Run 'systemd-resolve --status'; note the DNS servers configured: a) For the VPN; under a separate link (probably tun0), note down the IP of the DNS server(s). Also note the name of the interface (link). b) For the "main" connection; under the link for your ethernet or wireless devices (wl*, en*, whatever it may be), note down the IP of the DNS server(s). Also note the name of the interface (link). 4) In a separate terminal, run 'sudo tcpdump -ni <the main interface> port 53'; let it run. 5) In a separate terminal, run 'sudo tcpdump -ni <the VPN interface> port 53'; let it run. 6) In yet another terminal, issue name resolution requests using dig: a) For a name known to be reachable via the public network: 'dig www.yahoo.com' b) For a name known to be reachable only via the VPN: 'dig <some DNS behind the VPN>' 7) Check the output of each terminal running tcpdump. When requesting the public name, traffic can go through either. When requesting the "private" name (behind the VPN), traffic should only be going through the interface for the VPN. Additionally, ensure the IP receiving the requests for the VPN name is indeed the IP address noted above for the VPN's DNS server. If you see no traffic showing in tcpdump output when requesting a name, it may be because it is cached by systemd-resolved. Use a different name you have not tried before. [Regression potential] The code change the handling of DNS servers when using a VPN, we should check that name resolution still work whne using a VPN in different configurations ----------------- In 16.04 the NetworkManager package used to carry this patch: http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~network-manager/network-manager/ubuntu/view/head:/debian/patches/Filter-DNS-servers-to-add-to-dnsmasq-based-on-availa.patch It fixed the DNS setup so that when I'm on the VPN, I am not sending unencrypted DNS queries to the (potentially hostile) local nameservers. This patch disappeared in an update. I think it was present in 1.2.2-0ubuntu0.16.04.4 but was dropped some time later. This security bug exists upstream too: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=746422 It's not a *regression* there though, as they didn't fix it yet (unfortunately!)
