Comment 2 Tomáš Hozza 2016-07-11 13:07:26 UTC
Upstream solution:

ISC wish to stress that the behavior in question is not a failure
of BIND to implement DNS protocols correctly, but is if anything
an oversight in the protocol.  However, for the convenience of
operators who take zone data from untrusted sources (such as
secondary name service providers) we have committed to delivering
a feature in upcoming maintenance releases of BIND which will
address the issue by allowing operators to set limits on the
maximum zone size BIND will accept.

This bug will be closed when new upstream version will be released.

Comment 3 Fedora Admin XMLRPC Client 2016-12-01 14:21:03 UTC
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

Comment 4 Fedora End Of Life 2017-02-28 09:59:57 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 26 development cycle.
Changing version to '26'.

Comment 5 Petr Menšík 2017-07-26 15:19:42 UTC
This bug was fixed by new released version 9.11.1 and 9.10.5. It is fixed already in f24, f25 and f26. I just failed to add this bug when making the update. Solution for limiting size of incoming zones is per-zone option max-records.
