    Package        : mydns
    Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-0351
    BugTraq ID     : 16431
    Debian Bug     : 348826
    NISCC reported that MyDNS, a DNS server using an SQL database for data
    storage, can be tricked into an infinite loop by a remote attacker and
    hence cause a denial of service condition.
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain mydns packages.
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.0.0-4sarge1.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.1.0+pre-3.
    We recommend that you upgrade your mydns package.
