Summary0006794: dnsrecon needs to be updated to latest in Kali's apt repo

The current version of "dnsrecon" installed from Kali's apt repository produces the error below when running any zone transfer. This happens in Kali 2020.3. Installing the latest dnsrecon directly from GitHub fixes the issue, so it needs to be updated in the apt repository, please. The repository is here:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/dnsrecon/lib/", line 429, in zone_transfer
zone = self.from_wire(dns.query.xfr(ns_srv, self._domain))
File "/usr/share/dnsrecon/lib/", line 378, in from_wire
rd.choose_relativity(z.origin, relativize)
AttributeError: 'SOA' object has no attribute 'choose_relativity'

Steps To Reproduce
  1. Install dnsrecon from apt:
    $ sudo apt install dnsrecon

  2. Run a command:
    $ ./ -d -t axfr

  3. Observe the error:
    AttributeError: 'SOA' object has no attribute 'choose_relativity'

Additional Information

The workaround for me was to install the latest version from GitHub and run it locally.

$ git clone
$ cd dnsrecon
$ ./ -d -t axfr
