Ubuntu Security Notice USN-627-1              July 22, 2008
dnsmasq vulnerability
A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
  dnsmasq-base                    2.41-2ubuntu2.1

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart Dnsmasq to effect
the necessary changes.

Details follow:

Dan Kaminsky discovered weaknesses in the DNS protocol as implemented
by Dnsmasq. A remote attacker could exploit this to spoof DNS entries
and poison DNS caches. Among other things, this could lead to
misdirected email and web traffic.
