Debian DLA-1435-1 : dnsmasq regression update
High Nessus Plugin ID 111172
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThe dns-root-data update to 2017072601~deb8u2 broke dnsmasq's init script, making dnsmasq no longer start when dns-root-data was installed.
This update fixes dnsmasq's parsing of dns-root-data.
For Debian 8 'Jessie', this problem has been fixed in version 2.72-3+deb8u3.
We recommend that you upgrade your dnsmasq packages.
NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
