--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2009-1069
2009-01-29 22:29:32
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : dnsmasq
Product     : Fedora 9
Version     : 2.45
Release     : 1.fc9
URL         : http://www.thekelleys.org.uk/dnsmasq/
Summary     : A lightweight DHCP/caching DNS server
Description :
Dnsmasq is lightweight, easy to configure DNS forwarder and DHCP server.
It is designed to provide DNS and, optionally, DHCP, to a small network.
It can serve the names of local machines which are not in the global
DNS. The DHCP server integrates with the DNS server and allows machines
with DHCP-allocated addresses to appear in the DNS with names configured
either in each host or in a central configuration file. Dnsmasq supports
static and dynamic DHCP leases and BOOTP for network booting of diskless
machines.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

Update to newer upstream version - 2.45.    Version of dnsmasq previously
shipped in Fedora 9 did not properly drop privileges, causing it to run as root
instead of intended user nobody.  Issue was caused by a bug in kernel-headers
used in build environment of the original packages. (#454415)    New upstream
version also adds DNS query source port randomization, mitigating DNS spoofing
attacks. (CVE-2008-1447)
