nsd -- buffer overflow vulnerability

Description:

NLnet Labs:

A one-byte buffer overflow has been reported in NSD. The problem affects all versions 2.0.0 to 3.2.1. The bug allows a carefully crafted exploit to bring down your DNS server. It is highly unlikely that this one byte overflow can lead to other (system) exploits.
