Description Andrej Nemec 2017-01-16 09:31:18 UTC
An issue has been found in PowerDNS Authoritative Server allowing an authorized user to crash the server by inserting a specially crafted record in a zone under their control then sending a DNS query for that record. The issue is due to an integer overflow when checking if the content of the record matches the expected size, allowing an attacker to cause a read past the buffer boundary.
