Package: bind
Vulnerability: remote Denial of Service
Debian-specific: no
Vulnerable: yes

The version of BIND shipped with Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 is vulnerable to
a remote denial of service attack, which can cause the nameserver to crash
after accessing an uninitialized pointer.  This problem is fixed in the current
maintenance release of BIND, 8.2.2P7, and in the Debian package version
8.2.2p7-1 for both stable and unstable releases.

We recommend that all users of bind upgrade immediately.

Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 alias slink
- --------------------------------

  Slink is no longer being supported by the Debian Security Team.  We highly
  recommend an upgrade to the current stable release.

Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 (stable) alias potato
- ------------------------------------------

  Fixes are currently available for the Alpha, ARM, Intel ia32, Motorola 680x0,
  PowerPC and Sun SPARC architectures, and will be included in 2.2r2.
