the following vulnerability was published for systemd.
| In systemd 223 through 235, a remote DNS server can respond with a
| custom crafted DNS NSEC resource record to trigger an infinite loop in
| the dns_packet_read_type_window() function of the 'systemd-resolved'
| service and cause a DoS of the affected service.
If you fix the vulnerability please also make sure to include the
CVE (Common Vulnerabilities & Exposures) id in your changelog entry.
For further information see:
Please adjust the affected versions in the BTS as needed.
Since systemd-resolved is not enabled by default I think an update via
an upcoming stretch point release would be enough. Please let us know
if you disagre.
