Hi everybody,

We're being approached from various angles about PowerDNS and the recently
discovered DNS vulnerability (http://www.kb.cert.org/vuls/id/800113 )

To clear up any possible confusion, I'd like to state that since 2006,
PowerDNS has not been vulnerable for the issue reported in CVE-2008-1447, to
the extent that this is possible.

In fact, we've been warning the DNS community against these kinds of
problems since around that time - see

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me,
on-list or off.

Kind regards,

Bert Hubert
