(MaraDNS: CNAME Denial of Service)
Michael Krieger reported that a specially crafted DNS could prevent an
authoritative canonical name (CNAME) record from being resolved because
of an 'improper rotation of resource records'.
A remote attacker could send specially crafted DNS packets to a
vulnerable server, making it unable to resolve CNAME records.
Add 'max_ar_chain = 2' to the 'marac' configuration file.
