Update Information:

There has been a long-standing bug in Deadwood (ever since 2007) where
bounds checking for strings was not correctly done under some

Because of this, it has been possible to send Deadwood a "packet of
death" which will crash Deadwood. Since the attack causes
out-of-bounds memory to be read, but not written to, the impact of the
bug is denial of service. It appears this attack can only be exploited
by an IP with permission to perform recursive queries against

Note that this bug only affects users of the Deadwood recursive resolver.
