    Maxim Shudrak and the HP Zero Day Initiative reported a denial of
    service vulnerability in BIND, a DNS server. A specially crafted query
    that includes malformed rdata can cause named daemon to terminate with
    an assertion failure while rejecting the malformed query.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:9.7.3.dfsg-1~squeeze11.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:9.8.4.dfsg.P1-6+nmu2+deb7u1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your bind9 packages.
