    A vulnerability was discovered in BIND, a domain name server, whereby
    a malicious name server could return authoritative negative responses
    with a large TTL (time-to-live) value, thereby rendering a domain name
    unreachable.  A successful attack would require that a vulnerable BIND
    instance submit a query to a malicious nameserver. 
    
    The bind9 package is not affected by this vulnerability.
    
    For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
    fixed in version 1:8.3.3-2.0woody2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
