[slackware-security]  bind (SSA:2015-188-04)

New bind packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, 14.1,
and -current to fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/bind-9.9.7_P1-i486-1_slack14.1.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes a security issue where an attacker who can cause
  a validating resolver to query a zone containing specifically constructed
  contents can cause that resolver to fail an assertion and terminate due
  to a defect in validation code.  This means that a recursive resolver that
  is performing DNSSEC validation can be deliberately stopped by an attacker
  who can cause the resolver to perform a query against a
  maliciously-constructed zone.  This will result in a denial of service to
  clients who rely on that resolver.
