leafnode -- denial of service vulnerability


Matthias Andree reports:

A vulnerability was found in the fetchnews program (the NNTP client) that may under some circumstances cause a wait for input that never arrives, fetchnews "hangs". [...]

As only one fetchnews program can run at a time, subsequently started fetchnews and texpire programs will terminate. [...]

Upgrade your leafnode package to version 1.11.3.
