New bind packages are available for Slackware 14.0, 14.1, 14.2, and -current to
fix security issues.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/bind-9.11.19-i586-1_slack14.2.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes security issues:
  A malicious actor who intentionally exploits the lack of effective
  limitation on the number of fetches performed when processing referrals
  can, through the use of specially crafted referrals, cause a recursing
  server to issue a very large number of fetches in an attempt to process
  the referral. This has at least two potential effects: The performance of
  the recursing server can potentially be degraded by the additional work
  required to perform these fetches, and the attacker can exploit this
  behavior to use the recursing server as a reflector in a reflection attack
  with a high amplification factor.
  Replaying a TSIG BADTIME response as a request could trigger an assertion
  failure.
