    Package        : bind9
    CVE ID         : CVE-2015-1349
    
    Jan-Piet Mens discovered that the BIND DNS server would crash when
    processing an invalid DNSSEC key rollover, either due to an error on
    the zone operator's part, or due to interference with network traffic
    by an attacker.  This issue affects configurations with the directives
    "dnssec-validation auto;" (as enabled in the Debian default
    configuration) or "dnssec-lookaside auto;".
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:9.8.4.dfsg.P1-6+nmu2+deb7u4.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your bind9 packages.
