Debian Security Advisory DSA-1628-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Florian Weimer
August 10, 2008 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : pdns
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2008-3337

Brian Dowling discovered that the PowerDNS authoritative name server
does not respond to DNS queries which contain certain characters,
increasing the risk of successful DNS spoofing (CVE-2008-3337). This
update changes PowerDNS to respond with SERVFAIL responses instead.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
2.9.20-8+etch1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.9.21.1-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your pdns package.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
