    Package        : bind9
    CVE ID         : CVE-2017-3135
    Debian Bug     : 855520
    
    It was discovered that a maliciously crafted query can cause ISC's
    BIND DNS server (named) to crash if both Response Policy Zones (RPZ)
    and DNS64 (a bridge between IPv4 and IPv6 networks) are enabled.  It
    is uncommon for both of these options to be used in combination, so
    very few systems will be affected by this problem in practice.
    
    This update also corrects an additional regression caused by the fix
    for CVE-2016-8864, which was applied in a previous security update.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:9.9.5.dfsg-9+deb8u10.
    
    For the testing (stretch) and unstable (sid) distributions, this
    problem has been fixed in version 1:9.10.3.dfsg.P4-12.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your bind9 packages.
