If a server is configured with a response policy zone (RPZ)
that rewrites an answer with local data, and is also configured
for DNS64 address mapping, a NULL pointer can be read
triggering a server crash. This flaw is disclosed in
CVE-2017-3135. [RT #44434]
named could mishandle authority sections
with missing RRSIGs, triggering an assertion failure. This
flaw is disclosed in CVE-2016-9444. [RT #43632]
named mishandled some responses where
covering RRSIG records were returned without the requested
data, resulting in an assertion failure. This flaw is
disclosed in CVE-2016-9147. [RT #43548]
named incorrectly tried to cache TKEY
records which could trigger an assertion failure when there was
a class mismatch. This flaw is disclosed in CVE-2016-9131.
It was possible to trigger assertions when processing
responses containing answers of type DNAME. This flaw is
disclosed in CVE-2016-8864. [RT #43465]

message using a specially crafted request. This flaw is

the resulting name is too long. This flaw is disclosed in
CVE-2016-2775. [RT #42694]
A synthesized CNAME record appearing in a response before the
associated DNAME could be cached, when it should not have been.
This was a regression introduced while addressing CVE-2016-8864.
Fixed a crash when calling rndc stats on some
Windows builds: some Visual Studio compilers generate code that
crashes when the "%z" printf() format specifier is used. [RT #42380]
ECS clients with the option set to 0.0.0.0/0/0 or ::/0/0
were incorrectly getting a FORMERR response.
