Description Stefan Behte (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2010-09-03 21:17:59 UTC
CVE-2010-2244 (
  The AvahiDnsPacket function in avahi-core/socket.c in avahi-daemon in
  Avahi 0.6.16 and 0.6.25 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
  service (assertion failure and daemon exit) via a DNS packet with an
  invalid checksum followed by a DNS packet with a valid checksum, a
  different vulnerability than CVE-2008-5081.

Thanks, Sven. We'll need a stable version too, but we should wait on a new release/fix from bug 355583.
