Ticket #119 (closed defect: fixed)
ServiceBrowserNew() with interface=0 crashes avahi-daemon
|Reported by:||jamesh||Owned by:||lathiat|
While playing around with the Avahi service browser API, I managed to crash avahi-daemon by calling the ServiceBrowserNew?() method with interface=0.
I was able to do this as a local user, and needed to restart the daemon manually afterwards, so this counts as a local denial of service.
I am on an Ubuntu Feisty system, running the avahi-daemon 0.6.17-0ubuntu2 package.
I brought this issue up with Trent on IRC, who was able to confirm it.
