Description Victor Pereira 2017-06-06 06:17:50 UTC
CVE-2017-9430

Stack-based buffer overflow in dnstracer through 1.9 allows attackers to cause a
denial of service (application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact
via a command line with a long name argument that is mishandled in a strcpy call
for argv[0]. An example threat model is a web application that launches
dnstracer with an untrusted name string.
