    Package        : bind9
    Vulnerability  : improper assert
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2012-4244
    
    It was discovered that BIND, a DNS server, does not handle DNS records
    properly which approach size limits inherent to the DNS protocol.  An
    attacker could use crafted DNS records to crash the BIND server
    process, leading to a denial of service.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:9.7.3.dfsg-1~squeeze7.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your bind9 packages.
