Description

In dnsmasq before 2.78, if the DNS packet size does not match the expected size, the size parameter in a memset call gets a negative value. As it is an unsigned value, memset ends up writing up to 0xffffffff zero's (0xffffffffffffffff in 64 bit platforms), making dnsmasq crash.

Solution(s)

  • freebsd-upgrade-package-dnsmasq
  • freebsd-upgrade-package-dnsmasq-devel
