    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in BIND, a DNS server implementation.
    Package        : bind9
    Version        : 1:9.9.5.dfsg-9+deb8u19
    CVE ID         : CVE-2020-8616 CVE-2020-8617
    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in BIND, a DNS server 
         It was discovered that BIND does not sufficiently limit the number
         of fetches performed when processing referrals. An attacker can take
         advantage of this flaw to cause a denial of service (performance
         degradation) or use the recursing server in a reflection attack with
         a high amplification factor.
         It was discovered that a logic error in the code which checks TSIG
         validity can be used to trigger an assertion failure, resulting in
         denial of service.
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", these problems have been fixed in version
    We recommend that you upgrade your bind9 packages.
