Description Tomas Hoger 2008-12-11 11:05:57 UTC
Hugo Dias of the Synchron Security Labs discovered a remote denial of service flaw in the avahi daemon.  A crafted multicast DNS (mDNS) packet with source port 0 can trigger assertion in originates_from_local_legacy_unicast_socket() function in avahi-core/server.c -- assert(port > 0); -- causing the daemon to call abort() and exit unexpectedly.

Scope of this attack is usually limited to a single LAN.
