    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 *)
