    New bind packages are available for Slackware 14.0, 14.1, 14.2, and -current to
    fix a security issue.
    
    
    Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:
    +--------------------------+
    patches/packages/bind-9.11.6_P1-i586-1_slack14.2.txz:  Upgraded.
      This update fixes a security issue:
      The TCP client quota set using the tcp-clients option could be exceeded
      in some cases. This could lead to exhaustion of file descriptors.
      For more information, see:
