Hello everyone,

We're happy to release PowerDNS Authoritative Server 4.0.5 and Recursor 4.0.7 which contain a lot of backports from the 4.1.x branch. These releases also drop support for Botan 1.10 in favor of Botan 2.x.

More importantly there are fixes for the following security advisories:

- Authoritative Server
  - PowerDNS Security Advisory 2017-04[1]: Missing check on API operations (CVE-2017-15091)
- Recursor
  - PowerDNS Security Advisory 2017-03[2]: Insufficient validation of DNSSEC signatures (CVE-2017-15090)
  - PowerDNS Security Advisory 2017-05[3]: Cross-Site Scripting in the web interface (CVE-2017-15092)
  - PowerDNS Security Advisory 2017-06[4]: Configuration file injection in the API (CVE-2017-15093)
  - PowerDNS Security Advisory 2017-07[5]: Memory leak in DNSSEC parsing (CVE-2017-15094)

(We thank Nixu for their discoveries of CVE-2017-15092, CVE-2017-15093 and CVE-2017-15094.)
