    CVE ID         : CVE-2016-2775 CVE-2016-2776
    Debian Bug     : 831796 839010
    
    Two vulnerabilities were reported in BIND, a DNS server.
    
    CVE-2016-2775
    
        The lwresd component in BIND (which is not enabled by default)
        could crash while processing an overlong request name.  This could
        lead to a denial of service.
    
    CVE-2016-2776
    
        A crafted query could crash the BIND name server daemon, leading
        to a denial of service.  All server roles (authoritative,
        recursive and forwarding) in default configurations are are
        affected.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1:9.9.5.dfsg-9+deb8u7.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your bind9 packages.
