by Nikola Strahija on July 17th, 2002 A buffer overflow vulnerability exists in different implementations of the DNS resolver libraries. A remote attacker able to sent malicious DNS responses could potentially exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code or cause a DoS (Denial of Service) on a vulnerable system. The named daemon itself is not vulnerable to this problem, but this latest version of bind 8 includes fixes to the DNS resolver libraries.
