Description Guilherme de Almeida Suckevicz 2021-07-28 16:57:46 UTC
PowerDNS Authoritative Server 4.5.0 (and the alpha/beta/rc1/rc2 prereleases that came before it) will crash with an uncaught out of bounds exception if it receives a query with QTYPE 65535. The offending code was not present in earlier versions, and they are not affected.
