Named could mishandle authority sections that were missing RRSIGs triggering an assertion failure. This flaw is disclosed in CVE-2016-9444. [RT # 43632]
Named mishandled some responses where covering RRSIG records are returned without the requested data resulting in a assertion failure. This flaw is disclosed in CVE-2016-9147. [RT #43548]
