Debian Security Advisory DSA-1831-1 security@debian.org

Package : djbdns
Vulnerability : programming error
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2009-0858
Debian Bug : 518169

Matthew Dempsky discovered that Daniel J. Bernstein's djbdns, a Domain
Name System server, does not constrain offsets in the required manner,
which allows remote attackers with control over a third-party subdomain
served by tinydns and axfrdns, to trigger DNS responses containing
arbitrary records via crafted zone data for this subdomain.

The old stable distribution (etch) does not contain djbdns.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.05-4+lenny1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.05-5.

We recommend that you upgrade your djbdns package.

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