Debian Security Advisory DSA-1968-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Florian Weimer January 08, 2010 http://www.debian.org/security/faq


Package : pdns-recursor Vulnerability : several Problem type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE Id(s) : CVE-2009-4009 CVE-2009-4010

It was discovered that pdns-recursor, the PowerDNS recursive name server, contains several vulnerabilities:

A buffer overflow can be exploited to crash the daemon, or potentially execute arbitrary code (CVE-2009-4009).

A cache poisoning vulnerability may allow attackers to trick the server into serving incorrect DNS data (CVE-2009-4010).

For the old stable distribution (etch), fixed packages will be provided soon.

For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in version 3.1.7-1+lenny1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 3.1.7.2-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your pdns-recursor package.
