    Package        : pdns-recursor
    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-8601
    
    Florian Maury from ANSSI discovered a flaw in pdns-recursor, a
    recursive DNS server : a remote attacker controlling
    maliciously-constructed zones or a rogue server could affect the
    performance of pdns-recursor, thus leading to resource exhaustion and
    a potential denial-of-service.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.3-3+deb7u1.
    
    For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie) and unstable
    distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 3.6.2-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your pdns-recursor packages.
