PowerDNS values the security of the internet, and strives to keep its programs as secure as possible. To further this cause, we’ve run our code through the Coverity Development Testing suite, and as a result, we’ve been alerted to potential future security issues within our products. None of these issues were remotely exploitable, but nevertheless, in the future they might have been.
As an open source program, we were able to benefit from Coverity’s Open Source Report, and since this report helped us improve our code, we’ve now integrated daily automatic Coverity scans of our products.
We are grateful to Coverity for this fine service, and we recommend their software and services to anybody that cares about security!
Interested developers from our community, especially those responsible for specific backends, are welcome to request access to our Coverity projects.
