Date Reported:
19 Oct 2017
Affected Packages:
Security database references:
In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 876315.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2017-14339.
More information:

It was discovered that YADIFA, an authoritative DNS server, did not sufficiently check its input. This allowed a remote attacker to cause a denial-of-service by forcing the daemon to enter an infinite loop.

For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in version 2.2.3-1+deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your yadifa packages.
