    It was discovered that BIND, a DNS server, hangs while constructing
    the additional section of a DNS reply, when certain combinations of
    resource records are present.  This vulnerability affects both
    recursive and authoritative servers.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:9.7.3.dfsg-1~squeeze8.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your bind9 packages.
