Debian Security Advisory DSA-1434-1                                  Thijs Kinkhorst

Package        : mydns
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2007-2362

It was discovered that in MyDNS, a domain name server with database
backend, the daemon could be crashed through malicious remote update
requests, which may lead to denial of service.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 1:1.1.0-7etch1.

The old stable distribution (sarge) is not affected.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.1.0-8.

We recommend that you upgrade your mydns packages.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
