    Ray Morris discovered that the PowerDNS authoritative sever responds
    to response packets.  An attacker who can spoof the source address of
    IP packets can cause an endless packet loop between a PowerDNS
    authoritative server and another DNS server, leading to a denial of
    service.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.9.21.2-1+lenny1.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.9.22-8+squeeze1.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy) and the unstable distribution
    (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your pdns packages.
