To respond to your upgrade to bind-4.9.6 or 8.1.1,  I would go with
4.9.6 because I know of many bugs left in 8.1.1 that can harm a Name
Server.  When I get more information on this,  I will release it to the
list.

One of the many bugs in it involves CNAME.  I will talk to the person
who released this information to me and get back to the list.

3a) What measures were taken (other than discussion of DNSSEC, or
lack of
it) to 'cure' affected servers?

upgrade to bind-4.9.6 or bind-8.1.1.
