unbound: pointer dereference in uninitialized memory (CVE-2019-16866)
Due to an error in parsing NOTIFY queries, it is possible for Unbound to continue processing malformed queries and may ultimately result in a pointer dereference in uninitialized memory. This results in a crash of the Unbound daemon.
Whether this issue leads to a crash depends on the content of the uninitialized memory space and cannot be predicted. This issue can only be triggered by queries received from addresses that are allowed to send queries according to Unbound's ACL (access-control in the Unbound configuration).
Unbound 1.7.1 up to and including 1.9.3.
