Description

Knot Resolver 2.3.0 (2018-04-23) ================================

Security


  • fix CVE-2018-1110: denial of service triggered by malformed DNS messages (!550, !558, security!2, security!4)

  • increase resilience against slow lorris attack (security!5)

Bugfixes


  • validation: fix SERVFAIL in case of CNAME to NXDOMAIN in a single zone (!538)

  • validation: fix SERVFAIL for DS . query (!544)

  • lib/resolve: don't send unecessary queries to parent zone (!513)

  • iterate: fix validation for zones where parent and child share NS (!543)

  • TLS: improve error handling and documentation (!536, !555, !559)

Improvements


  • prefill: new module to periodically import root zone into cache (replacement for RFC 7706, !511)

  • network_listen_fd: always create end point for supervisor supplied file descriptor

  • use CPPFLAGS build environment variable if set (!547)
