Synopsis
========

A vulnerability in PowerDNS could allow a remote attacker to create a
Denial of Service condition.

Background
==========

The PowerDNS nameserver is an authoritative-only nameserver which uses
a flexible backend architecture.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 net-dns/pdns < 3.0.1 >= 3.0.1

Description
===========

A vulnerability has been found in PowerDNS which could cause a packet
loop of DNS responses.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could send specially crafted DNS response packets,
possibly resulting in a Denial of Service condition.

Workaround
==========

PowerDNS users can set "cache-ttl=0" in /etc/powerdns/pdns.conf and
then restart the PowerDNS daemon:

# /etc/init.d/pdns restart

Please review the PowerDNS Security Advisory below for more workaround
details.

Resolution
