Description

A denial of service flaw was found in the way BIND handled a query response containing CNAME or DNAME resource records in an unusual order. A remote attacker could use this flaw to make named exit unexpectedly with an assertion failure via a specially crafted DNS response. (CVE-2017-3137)

A denial of service flaw was found in the way BIND handled query requests when using DNS64 with 'break-dnssec yes' option. A remote attacker could use this flaw to make named exit unexpectedly with an assertion failure via a specially crafted DNS request. (CVE-2017-3136)

Upstream acknowledges Oleg Gorokhov (Yandex) as the original reporter of CVE-2017-3136 .
