avahi regression

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

  • Ubuntu 6.10
  • Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
  • Ubuntu 5.10

Software Description


USN-380-1 fixed a vulnerability in Avahi. However, if used with Network manager, that version occasionally failed to resolve .local DNS names until Avahi got restarted. This update fixes the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.
