Gerfried Fuchs uploaded new packages for pdns-recursor which fixed the
following security problems:


  A buffer overflow can be exploited to crash the daemon, or potentially
  execute arbitrary code.

  server into serving incorrect DNS data.

For the etch-backports distribution the problems have been fixed in
version 3.1.7-1+lenny1~bpo40+1.

For the sid distribution the problems have been fixed in version

Upgrade instructions

If you don't use pinning (see [1]) you have to update the packages
manually via "apt-get -t lenny-backports install <packagelist>" with the
packagelist of your installed packages affected by this update.
