    Package        : pdns
    CVE ID         : CVE-2019-3871
    Debian Bug     : 924966
    
    Adam Dobrawy, Frederico Silva and Gregory Brzeski from HyperOne.com
    discovered that pdns, an authoritative DNS server, did not properly
    validate user-supplied data when building a HTTP request from a DNS
    query in the HTTP Connector of the Remote backend. This would allow a
    remote user to cause either a denial-of-service, or information
    disclosure.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.0.3-1+deb9u4.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your pdns packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of pdns please refer to
    its security tracker page at:
