    Package        : bind9
    CVE ID         : CVE-2015-4620
    
    Breno Silveira Soares of Servico Federal de Processamento de Dados
    (SERPRO) discovered that the BIND DNS server is prone to a denial of
    service vulnerability. A remote attacker who can cause a validating
    resolver to query a zone containing specifically constructed contents
    can cause the resolver to terminate with an assertion failure, resulting
    in a denial of service to clients relying on the resolver.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed
    in version 1:9.8.4.dfsg.P1-6+nmu2+deb7u5.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:9.9.5.dfsg-9+deb8u1.
    
    For the testing distribution (stretch) and the unstable distribution
    (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your bind9 packages.
