Key Security, Maintenance, and Features Releases


Security-Based Updates

ISC Bind 9.16.20
Fixed an assertion failure that occurred in named when it attempted to send a UDP packet that exceeded the MTU size, if Response Rate Limiting (RRL) was enabled. (CVE-2021-25218) [GL #2856]
Named failed to check the opcode of responses when performing zone refreshes, stub zone updates, and UPDATE forwarding. This could lead to an assertion failure under certain conditions and has been addressed by rejecting responses whose opcode does not match the expected value. [GL #2762]
