Fix two security vulnerabilities.
1. BIND servers which are configured to perform DNSSEC validation and which are using managed keys (which occurs implicitly when using "dnssec-validation auto;" or "dnssec-lookaside auto;") may exhibit unpredictable behavior due to the use of an improperly initialized variable.
2. An integer overflow in computing the size of IGMPv3 data buffer can result in a buffer which is too small for the requested operation.
This can result in a DOS attack.
