    Debian Bug     : 842858
    
    Tony Finch and Marco Davids reported an assertion failure in BIND, a
    DNS server implementation, which causes the server process to
    terminate.  This denial-of-service vulnerability is related to a
    defect in the processing of responses with DNAME records from
    authoritative servers and primarily affects recursive resolvers.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:9.9.5.dfsg-9+deb8u8.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your bind9 packages.
