    Jonathan Foote discovered that the BIND DNS server does not properly
    handle TKEY queries. A remote attacker can take advantage of this flaw
    to mount a denial of service via a specially crafted query triggering an
    assertion failure and causing BIND to exit.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed
    in version 1:9.8.4.dfsg.P1-6+nmu2+deb7u6.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:9.9.5.dfsg-9+deb8u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your bind9 packages.
