The dnsmasq packages contain Dnsmasq, a lightweight DNS forwarder and DHCP server. Security Fix: * A heap buffer overflow was found in dnsmasq in the code responsible for building DNS replies. An attacker could send crafted DNS packets to dnsmasq which would cause it to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code. Red Hat would like to thank Felix Wilhelm , Fermin J. Serna , Gabriel Campana , Kevin Hamacher , and Ron Bowes for reporting this issue.
