    It was discovered that in MyDNS, a domain name server with database
    backend, the daemon could be crashed through malicious remote update
    requests, which may lead to denial of service.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:1.1.0-7etch1.
    
    The old stable distribution (sarge) is not affected.

    We recommend that you upgrade your mydns packages.
