Severity: Important
References: CVE-2017-3145 

Issue Overview:

Improper fetch cleanup sequencing in the resolver can cause named to crash:
A use-after-free flaw leading to denial of service was found in the way BIND internally handled cleanup operations on upstream recursion fetch contexts. A remote attacker could potentially use this flaw to make named, acting as a DNSSEC validating resolver, exit unexpectedly with an assertion failure via a specially crafted DNS request.(CVE-2017-3145 )
