DLA-1435-1 dnsmasq -- LTS security update
- Date Reported:
- 20 Jul 2018
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 860064.
- More information:
The dns-root-data update to 2017072601~deb8u2 broke dnsmasq's init script, making dnsmasq no longer start when dns-root-data was installed.
This update fixes dnsmasq's parsing of dns-root-data.
For Debian 8
Jessie, this problem has been fixed in version 2.72-3+deb8u3.
We recommend that you upgrade your dnsmasq packages.
