Description

This updates addresses a critical security vulnerability in the DNS resolver related to AF_UNSPEC queries with getaddrinfo (CVE-2015-7547). In addition, a bug that causes Hesiod lookups to fail with a crash is fixed.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
