The Berkeley Internet Name Domain (BIND) is an implementation of the Domain NameSystem (DNS) protocols.

BIND includes a DNS server (named); a resolver library(routines for applications to use when interfacing with DNS); and tools forverifying that the DNS server is operating correctly.Security Fix(es):* A denial of service flaw was found in the way BIND parsed signature recordsfor DNAME records.

By sending a specially crafted query, a remote attacker coulduse this flaw to cause named to crash. (CVE-2016-1286)* A denial of service flaw was found in the way BIND processed certain controlchannel input.

A remote attacker able to send a malformed packet to the controlchannel could use this flaw to cause named to crash. (CVE-2016-1285)Red Hat would like to thank ISC for reporting these issues.
