    CVE ID         : CVE-2011-2464
    
    It was discovered that BIND, a DNS server, does not correctly process
    certain UPDATE requests, resulting in a server crash and a denial of
    service.  This vulnerability affects BIND installations even if they
    do not actually use dynamic DNS updates.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:9.6.ESV.R4+dfsg-0+lenny3.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:9.7.3.dfsg-1~squeeze3.
    
    The testing distribution (wheezy) and the unstable distribution (sid)
    will be fixed later.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your bind9 packages.
