Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2007:003 (avahi).

permits remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop)
via a crafted compressed DNS response with a label that points to
itself.
Updated packages are patched to address this issue.
