    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-0591
    Debian Bug     : 735190
    
    Jared Mauch reported a denial of service flaw in the way BIND, a DNS
    server, handled queries for NSEC3-signed zones. A remote attacker could
    use this flaw against an authoritative name server that served
    NCES3-signed zones by sending a specially crafted query, which, when
    processed, would cause named to crash.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:9.8.4.dfsg.P1-6+nmu2+deb7u2.
    
    For the testing distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:9.9.5.dfsg-2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:9.9.5.dfsg-2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your bind9 packages.
