Description

According to its self-reported version number, the MaraDNS server running on the remote host is affected by a NULL pointer dereference issue due to improper handling of hostnames not ending with a dot character in 'csv2' zone files. This issue could allow a remote attacker to crash the DNS server, resulting in a denial of service.
