Description Andrej Nemec 2017-10-30 13:26:40 UTC
In systemd 223 through 235, a remote DNS server can respond with a custom crafted DNS NSEC resource record to trigger an infinite loop in the dns_packet_read_type_window() function of the 'systemd-resolved' service and cause a DoS of the affected service.

Statement:

This issue did not affect the versions of systemd as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 as they did not include the vulnerable code.
