Subject: Infinite loop doing CNAME recursion
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 453b
Looking at the new CNAME recursion code I see that ParaDNS::Resolver::Query::recurse_cname method should stop recursion, but it can't because the recursive lookup is made by new query, with nqueries member initialized to zero. I found this on an async qpsmtpd server not working properly because it was busy repeating the same DNS query. It was doing a lookup for a host that was incorrectly configured as an alias to itself. Please check, thank you!
