dnsmasq

A lightweight DHCP/caching DNS server

Dnsmasq is lightweight, easy to configure DNS forwarder and DHCP server. It is designed to provide DNS and, optionally, DHCP, to a small network. It can serve the names of local machines which are not in the global DNS. The DHCP server integrates with the DNS server and allows machines with DHCP-allocated addresses to appear in the DNS with names configured either in each host or in a central configuration file. Dnsmasq supports static and dynamic DHCP leases and BOOTP for network booting of diskless machines.

   Is this a security problem/trojan/backdoor?

/usr/share/doc/dnsmasq-2.45/CHANGELOG

release 0.4 - initial public release

release 0.5 - added caching, removed compiler warning on linux PPC

release 0.6 - TCP handling: close socket and return to connect state if we 
              can't read the first byte. This corrects a problem seen very 
              occasionally where dnsmasq would loop using all available CPU.
