Update bind99 to 9.9.7.
* On servers configured to perform DNSSEC validation using managed
trust anchors (i.e., keys configured explicitly via managed-keys,
or implicitly via dnssec-validation auto; or dnssec-lookaside
auto;), revoking a trust anchor and sending a new untrusted
replacement could cause named to crash with an assertion failure.
This could occur in the event of a botched key rollover, or
potentially as a result of a deliberate attack if the attacker was
in position to monitor the victim's DNS traffic.
This flaw was discovered by Jan-Piet Mens, and is disclosed in
CVE-2015-1349. [RT #38344]
* A flaw in delegation handling could be exploited to put named into
an infinite loop, in which each lookup of a name server triggered
additional lookups of more name servers. This has been addressed by
placing limits on the number of levels of recursion named will
allow (default 7), and on the number of queries that it will send
before terminating a recursive query (default 50).
The recursion depth limit is configured via the max-recursion-depth
option, and the query limit via the max-recursion-queries option.
The flaw was discovered by Florian Maury of ANSSI, and is disclosed
in CVE-2014-8500. [RT #37580]
* NXDOMAIN responses to queries of type DS are now cached separately
from those for other types. This helps when using "grafted" zones
of type forward, for which the parent zone does not contain a
delegation, such as local top-level domains. Previously a query of
type DS for such a zone could cause the zone apex to be cached as
NXDOMAIN, blocking all subsequent queries. (Note: This change is
only helpful when DNSSEC validation is not enabled. "Grafted" zones
without a delegation in the parent are not a recommended
* NOTIFY messages that are sent because a zone has been updated are
now given priority above NOTIFY messages that were scheduled when
the server started up. This should mitigate delays in zone
propagation when servers are restarted frequently.
* Errors reported when running rndc addzone (e.g., when a zone file
cannot be loaded) have been clarified to make it easier to diagnose
* Added support for OPENPGPKEY type.
* When encountering an authoritative name server whose name is an
alias pointing to another name, the resolver treats this as an
error and skips to the next server. Previously this happened
silently; now the error will be logged to the newly-created "cname"
* If named is not configured to validate the answer then allow
fallback to plain DNS on timeout even when we know the server
supports EDNS. This will allow the server to potentially resolve
signed queries when TCP is being blocked.
* dig, host and nslookup aborted when encountering a name which,
after appending search list elements, exceeded 255 bytes. Such
names are now skipped, but processing of other names will continue.
* The error message generated when named-checkzone or named-checkconf
-z encounters a $TTL directive without a value has been clarified.
* Semicolon characters (;) included in TXT records were incorrectly
escaped with a backslash when the record was displayed as text.
This is actually only necessary when there are no quotation marks.
* When files opened for writing by named, such as zone journal files,
were referenced more than once in named.conf, it could lead to file
corruption as multiple threads wrote to the same file. This is now
detected when loading named.conf and reported as an error. [RT
* dnssec-keygen -S failed to generate successor keys for some
algorithm types (including ECDSA and GOST) due to a difference in
the content of private key files. This has been corrected. [RT
* UPDATE messages that arrived too soon after an rndc thaw could be
lost. [RT #37233]
* Forwarding of UPDATE messages did not work when they were signed
with SIG(0); they resulted in a BADSIG response code. [RT #37216]
* When checking for updates to trust anchors listed in managed-keys,
named now revalidates keys based on the current set of active trust
anchors, without relying on any cached record of previous
validation. [RT #37506]
* When NXDOMAIN redirection is in use, queries for a name that is
present in the redirection zone but a type that is not present will
now return NOERROR instead of NXDOMAIN.
* When a zone contained a delegation to an IPv6 name server but not
an IPv4 name server, it was possible for a memory reference to be
left un-freed. This caused an assertion failure on server shutdown,
but was otherwise harmless. [RT #37796]
* Due to an inadvertent removal of code in the previous release, when
named encountered an authoritative name server which dropped all
EDNS queries, it did not always try plain DNS. This has been
corrected. [RT #37965]
* A regression caused nsupdate to use the default recursive servers
rather than the SOA MNAME server when sending the UPDATE.
* Adjusted max-recursion-queries to better accommodate empty caches.
* Built-in "empty" zones did not correctly inherit the
"allow-transfer" ACL from the options or view. [RT #38310]
* A mutex leak was fixed that could cause named processes to grow to
very large sizes. [RT #38454]
* Fixed some bugs in RFC 5011 trust anchor management, including a
memory leak and a possible loss of state information.[RT #38458]

Update bind99 to 9.9.6.
Support for CAA record types, as described in RFC 6844 "DNS
Certification Authority Authorization (CAA) Resource Record",
was added. [RT#36625] [RT #36737]
Disallow "request-ixfr" from being specified in zone statements
where it is not valid (it is only valid for slave and redirect
zones) [RT #36608]
Support for CDS and CDNSKEY resource record types was added. For
details see the proposed Informational Internet-Draft "Automating
DNSSEC Delegation Trust Maintenance" at
http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-d … inance-14.
Added version printing options to various BIND utilities. [RT #26057]
On Windows, enable the Python tools "dnssec-coverage" and
"dnssec-checkds". [RT #34355]
Added a "no-case-compress" ACL, which causes named to use
case-insensitive compression (disabling change #3645) for specified
clients. (This is useful when dealing with broken client
implementations that use case-sensitive name comparisons, rejecting
responses that fail to match the capitalization of the query
that was sent.) [RT #35300]
Adds RPZ SOA to the additional section of responses to clearly
indicate the use of RPZ in a manner that is intended to avoid
causing issues for downstream resolvers and forwarders [RT #36507]
rndc now gives distinct error messages when an unqualified zone
name matches multiple views vs. matching no views [RT #36691]
Improves the accuracy of dig's reported round trip times. [RT #36611]
The Windows installer now places files in the Program Files area
rather than system services. [RT #35361]
When an SPF record exists in a zone but no equivalent TXT record
does, a warning will be issued. The warning for the reverse
condition is no longer issued. See the check-spf option in the
documentation for details. [RT #36210]
"named" will now log explicitly when using rndc.key to configure
command channel. [RT #35316]
The default setting for the -U option (setting the number of UDP
listeners per interface) has been adjusted to improve performance.
Aging of smoothed round-trip time measurements is now limited
to no more than once per second, to improve accuracy in selecting
the best name server. [RT #32909]
DNSSEC keys that have been marked active but have no publication
date are no longer presumed to be publishable. [RT #35063]
The Makefile in bin/python was changed to work around a bmake
bug in FreeBSD 10 and NetBSD 6. [RT #36993] (**)
Corrected bugs in the handling of wildcard records by the DNSSEC
validator: invalid wildcard expansions could be treated as valid
if signed, and valid wildcard expansions in NSEC3 opt-out ranges
had the AD bit set incorrectly in responses. [RT #37093] [RT #37072]
When resigning, dnssec-signzone was removing all signatures from
delegation nodes. It now retains DS and (if applicable) NSEC
signatures. [RT #36946]
The AD flag was being set inappopriately on RPZ responses. [RT #36833]
Updates the URI record type to current draft standard,
draft-faltstrom-uri-08, and allows the value field to be zero
length [RT #36642] [RT #36737]
RRSIG sets that were not loaded in a single transaction at start
up were not being correctly added to re-signing heaps. [RT #36302]
Setting '-t aaaa' in .digrc had unintended side-effects. [RT #36452]
A race condition could cause a crash in isc_event_free during
shutdown. [RT #36720]
Addresses a race condition issue in dispatch. [RT #36731]
acl elements could be miscounted, causing a crash while loading
a config [RT #36675]
Corrects a deadlock between view.c and adb.c. [RT #36341]
liblwres wasn't properly handling link-local addresses in
nameserver clauses in resolv.conf. [RT #36039]
Buffers in isc_print_vsnprintf were not properly initialized
leading to potential overflows when printing out quad values.
Don't call qsort() with a null pointer, and disable the GCC 4.9
"delete null pointer check" optimizer option. This fixes problems
when using GNU GCC 4.9.0 where its compiler code optimizations
may cause crashes in BIND. For more information, see the operational
advisory at https://kb.isc.org/article/AA-01167/. [RT #35968]
Fixed a bug that could cause repeated resigning of records in
dynamically signed zones. [RT #35273]
Fixed a bug that could cause an assertion failure after forwarding
was disabled. [RT #35979]
Fixed a bug that caused SERVFAILs when using RPZ on a system
configured as a forwarder. [RT #36060]
Worked around a limitation in Solaris's /dev/poll implementation
that could cause named to fail to start when configured to use
more sockets than the system could accomodate. [RT #35878]
