    A vulnerability was found in the Bind DNS Server. Limits on 
    simultaneous tcp connections have not been enforced correctly and could 
    lead to exhaustion of file descriptors. In the worst case this could 
    affect the file descriptors of the whole system.
    
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version 
    1:9.9.5.dfsg-9+deb8u18.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your bind9 packages.
