Package        : bind9
CVE ID         : CVE-2021-25214 CVE-2021-25215 CVE-2021-25216
Debian Bug     : 987741 987742 987743

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in BIND, a DNS server


    Greg Kuechle discovered that a malformed incoming IXFR transfer
    could trigger an assertion failure in named, resulting in denial
    of service.


    Siva Kakarla discovered that named could crash when a DNAME record
    placed in the ANSWER section during DNAME chasing turned out to be
    the final answer to a client query.


    It was discovered that the SPNEGO implementation used by BIND is
    prone to a buffer overflow vulnerability. This update switches to
    use the SPNEGO implementation from the Kerberos libraries.

For the stable distribution (buster), these problems have been fixed in
version 1:9.11.5.P4+dfsg-5.1+deb10u5.

We recommend that you upgrade your bind9 packages.
