- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : pdns
Vulnerability : buffer overflow
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2006-4251

It was discovered that malformed TCP packets may lead to denial of service
and possibly the execution of arbitrary code if the PowerDNS nameserver
acts as a recursive nameserver.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.9.17-13sarge3.

For the upcoming stable distribution (etch) this problem has been fixed
in version 3.1.4-1 of pdns-recursor.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 3.1.4-1 of pdns-recursor.

We recommend that you upgrade your PowerDNS packages.
