The attached PoC causes a remote heap smash in mydns 1.1.0, the bug is found
within the dynamic update code (update.c). Exploitation requires update privs
(which tends not to matter too much if you know an IP address with
privileges to do so), also allow-update = yes must be set in /etc/mydns.conf.
The attached patch also fixes a stack based off-by-one overflow in update.c.
