Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA771] DSA-771-1 pdns

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-771-1 pdns

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Several problems have been discovered in pdns, a versatile nameserver
that can lead to a denial of service. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project identifies the following problems:
Norbert Sendetzky and Jan de Groot discovered that the LDAP backend
did not properly escape all queries, permiting it to fail and not
answer queries anymore.
Wilco Baan discovered that queries from clients without recursion
permission can temporarily blank out domains to clients with
recursion permitted. This enables outside users to blank out a
domain temporarily to normal users.
The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain pdns packages.
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.9.17-13sarge1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.9.18-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your pdns package.
