A weakness has been reported in PowerDNS, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct spoofing attacks.
The weakness is caused due to the server dropping DNS queries for invalid DNS records within a valid domain. This can be exploited to facilitate the spoofing of the valid domain on third-party DNS servers.
The weakness is reported in versions prior to 188.8.131.52.
Solution: Update to version 184.108.40.206.
