  • A defect in BIND's handling of responses containing a DNAME answer had the potential to trigger assertion errors in the server remotely, thereby facilitating a denial-of-service attack. (CVE-2016-8864, bsc#1007829).

  • Fix BIND to return a valid hostname in response to ldapdump queries. (bsc#965748)
