Branch: CURRENT, Version: 9.8.6pl2nb1, Package name: bind-9.8.6pl2nb1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

BIND, the Berkeley Internet Name Daemon, version 9 is a major rewrite
of nearly all aspects of the underlying BIND architecture. Some
of the important features of BIND-9 are:

- DNS Security
- IP version 6
- DNS Protocol Enhancements
- Views
- Multiprocessor Support
- Improved Portability Architecture
- Full NSEC3 support
- Automatic zone re-signing
- New update-policy methods tcp-self and 6to4-self

This package contains the BIND 9.8 release.

Log message:
Remove example rc.d scripts from PLISTs.

These are now handled dynamically if INIT_SYSTEM is set to "rc.d", or
ignored otherwise.

Update bind98 to 9.8.6pl2, (BIND 9.8.6-P2), security fix for CVE-2014-0591.

	--- 9.8.6-P2 released ---

3693.	[security]	memcpy was incorrectly called with overlapping
			ranges resulting in malformed names being generated
			on some platforms.  This could cause INSIST failures
			when serving NSEC3 signed zones.  [RT #35120]

3658.	[port]		linux: Address platform specific compilation issue
			when libcap-devel is installed. [RT #34838]

Log message:
Update bind98 to 9.8.6pl1 (BIND 9.8.6-P1).

Security Fixes

   Treat an all zero netmask as invalid when generating the localnets
   acl. A Winsock library call on some Windows systems can return
   an incorrect value for an interface's netmask, potentially causing
   unexpected matches to BIND's built-in "localnets" Access Control
   List. (CVE-2013-6230) [RT #34687]

Log message:
Update bind98 to 9.8.6 (BIND 9.8.6).
(CVE-2013-4854 and CVE-2013-3919 were already fixed in pkgsrc.)

Security Fixes

   Previously an error in bounds checking on the private type
   'keydata' could be used to deny service through a deliberately
   triggerable REQUIRE failure (CVE-2013-4854).  [RT #34238]

   Prevents exploitation of a runtime_check which can crash named
   when satisfying a recursive query for particular malformed zones.
   (CVE-2013-3919) [RT #33690]

Feature Changes

   rndc status now also shows the build-id. [RT #20422]

   Improved OPT pseudo-record processing to make it easier to support
   new EDNS options. [RT #34414]

   "configure" now finishes by printing a summary of optional BIND
   features and whether they are active or inactive. ("configure
   --enable-full-report" increases the verbosity of the summary.)
   [RT #31777]

   Addressed compatibility issues with newer versions of Microsoft
   Visual Studio. [RT #33916]

   Improved the 'rndc' man page. [RT #33506]

   'named -g' now no longer works with an invalid logging configuration.
   [RT #33473]

   The default (and minimum) value for tcp-listen-queue is now 10
   instead of 3.  This is a subtle control setting (not applicable
   to all OS environments).  When there is a high rate of inbound
   TCP connections, it controls how many connections can be queued
   before they are accepted by named.  Once this limit is exceeded,
   new TCP connections will be rejected.  Note however that a value
   of 10 does not imply a strict limit of 10 queued TCP connections
   - the impact of changing this configuration setting will be
   OS-dependent.  Larger values for tcp-listen queue will permit
   more pending tcp connections, which may be needed where there
   is a high rate of TCP-based traffic (for example in a dynamic
   environment where there are frequent zone updates and transfers).
   For most production servers the new default value of 10 should
   be adequate.  [RT #33029]

   Added support for OpenSSL versions 0.9.8y, 1.0.0k, and 1.0.1e
   with PKCS#11. [RT #33463]

   Added logging messages on slave servers when they forward DDNS
   updates to a master. [RT #33240]

Bug Fixes

   Fixed the "allow-query-on" option to correctly check the destination
   address. [RT #34590]

   Fix DNSSEC auto maintenance so signatures can be removed from a
   zone with only KSK keys for an algorithm. [RT #34439]

   Fix forwarding for forward only "zones" beneath automatic empty
   zones. [RT #34583]

   Fix DNSSEC auto maintenance so signatures from newly inactive
   keys are removed (when publishing a new key while deactivating
   another key at the same time). [RT #32178]

   Remove bogus warning log message about missing signatures when
   receiving a query for a SIG record. [RT #34600]

   Fix Response Policy Zones on slave servers so new RPZ changes
   take effect. [RT #34450]

   Improved resistance to a theoretical authentication attack based
   on differential timing.  [RT #33939]

   named was failing to answer queries during "rndc reload" [RT
   #34098]

   Fixed a broken 'Invalid keyfile' error message in dnssec-keygen.
   [RT #34045]

   The build of BIND now installs isc/stat.h so that it's available
   to /isc/file.h when building other applications that reference
   these header files - for example dnsperf (see Debian bug ticket
   #692467).  [RT #33056]

   Better handle failures building XML for stats channel responses.
   [RT #33706]

   Fixed a memory leak in GSS-API processing. [RT #33574]

   Fixed an acache-related race condition that could cause a crash.
   [RT #33602]

   rndc now properly fails when given an invalid '-c' argument. [RT
   #33571]

   Fixed an issue with the handling of zero TTL records that could
   cause improper SERVFAILs. [RT #33411]

   Fixed a crash-on-shutdown race condition with DNSSEC validation.
   [RT #33573]

   Corrected the way that "rndc addzone" and "rndc delzone" \ 
handle
   non-standard characters in zone names. [RT #33419]
