Description Vincent Danen 2012-03-19 18:34:19 UTC
It was reported [1],[2] that MaraDNS suffers from a flaw where it is susceptible to spoofing attacks.  Due to an error in the cache update policy, which does not properly handle revoked domain names, a remote attacker could keep a domain name resolvable after it has been deleted from the registration.

This flaw is fixed in versions and 1.4.12, and is reported to affect all prior versions.
