Please be aware that one of the servers containing the PowerDNS sources has
been compromised (ie, hacked).
I'm currently figuring out what if anything has been touched. I've done a
lot to prevent this from ever happening again BUT I must urge you not to
trust anything you've downloaded lately from:
The hack was most likely performed via a local user - the kernel I ran with
had local vulnerabilities.
Will keep you posted about further updates.
chmod a-w /dev/kmem
don't run with local users
update your kernel frequently
We had an impressive uptime of 440 days or so, which I was so proud of I did
not want to reboot. See where it got me.
