CVE ID         : CVE-2016-1285 CVE-2016-1286

Two vulnerabilites have been discovered in ISC's BIND DNS server.

CVE-2016-1285

    A maliciously crafted rdnc, a way to remotely administer a BIND server,
    operation can cause named to crash, resulting in denial of service.

For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed
in version 9.8.4.dfsg.P1-6+nmu2+deb7u10.

We recommend that you upgrade your bind9 packages.
