Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA963] DSA-963-1 mydns

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-963-1 mydns

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

NISCC reported that MyDNS, a DNS server using an SQL database for data
storage, can be tricked into an infinite loop by a remote attacker and
hence cause a denial of service condition.
The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain mydns packages.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.0-4sarge1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.1.0+pre-3.
We recommend that you upgrade your mydns package.
