ASA-2019-00478 – PowerDNS Authoritative Server: Denial of service via crafted zone records

An issue has been found in PowerDNS Authoritative Server allowing an authorized user to cause the server to exit by inserting a crafted record in a MASTER type zone under their control. The issue is due to the fact that the Authoritative Server will exit when it tries to store the notified serial in the PostgreSQL database, if this serial cannot be represented in 31 bits.
