recursive DNS functionality, is vulnerable to a buffer overflow.

2) The remote BIND server is vulnerable to a denial of service (crash)
via SIG RR elements with invalid expiry times.

3) The remote BIND server is vulnerable to a denial of service.
When a DNS lookup is requested on a non-existent sub-domain of
a valid domain and an OPT resource record with a large UDP
payload is attached, the server may fail.
