[slackware-security]  bind (SSA:2020-330-01)

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-9.11.25-i586-1_slack14.2.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes bugs, including a denial-of-service security issue:
  After a Negative Trust Anchor (NTA) is added, BIND performs periodic
  checks to see if it is still necessary. If BIND encountered a failure
  while creating a query to perform such a check, it attempted to
  dereference a NULL pointer, resulting in a crash. [GL #2244]
  (* Security fix *)
