Description Martin Prpič 2015-11-09 10:20:57 UTC
The following flaw was found in PowerDNS Authoritative Server:

A bug was found using afl-fuzz in our packet parsing code. This bug, when exploited, this causes an assertion error and consequent termination of the the pdns_server process, causing a Denial of Service.

When the PowerDNS Authoritative Server is run inside the guardian (--guardian), or inside a supervisor like supervisord or systemd, it will be automatically restarted, limiting the impact to a somewhat degraded service.

PowerDNS Authoritative Server 3.4.4 - 3.4.6 are affected. No other versions are affected. The PowerDNS Recursor is not affected.

PowerDNS Authoritative Server 3.4.7 contains a fix to this issue.
