Package : pdns
Vulnerability : several
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2005-2301 CAN-2005-2302
Debian Bug : 318798

Several problems have been discovered in pdns, a versatile nameserver that can lead to a denial of service. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:

CAN-2005-2301

Norbert Sendetzky and Jan de Groot discoverd that the LDAP backend did not properly escape all queries, allowing it to fail and not answer queries anymore.

CAN-2005-2302

Wilco Baan discovered that queries from clients without recursion permission can temporarily blank out domains to clients with recursion permitted. This enables outside users to blank out a domain temporarily to normal users.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain pdns packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in version 2.9.17-13sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in version 2.9.18-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your pdns package.

Upgrade Instructions
