Package        : bind
Vulnerability  : buffer overflows and information leak
Debian-specific: no

BIND 8 suffered from several buffer overflows.  It is possible to
construct an inverse query that allows the stack to be read remotely
exposing environment variables.  CERT has disclosed information about
these issues.  A new upstream version fixes this.  Due to the
complexity of BIND we have decided to make an exception to our rule by
releasin the new upstream source to our stable distribution.

We recommend you upgrade your bind packages immediately.

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
