Description Dhiru Kholia 2016-09-22 10:11:33 UTC
The following flaw, reported by ISC, was found in all versions of BIND 9 (9.0.x -> 9.8.x, 9.9.0->9.9.9-P2, 9.9.3-S1->9.9.9-S3,9.10.0->9.10.4-P2):

A defect in the rendering of messages into packets can cause named to exit with an assertion failure in buffer.c while constructing a response to a query that meets certain criteria.

This assertion can be triggered even if the apparent source address isn't allowed to make queries (i.e. doesn't match 'allow-query').

This flaw is fixed in upstream versions 9.9.9-P3 and 9.10.4-P3.
