[slackware-security]  bind (SSA:2024-044-01)

New bind packages are available for Slackware 15.0 and -current to
fix security issues.


Here are the details from the Slackware 15.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/bind-9.16.48-i586-1_slack15.0.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes bugs and security issues:
  Specific DNS answers could cause a denial-of-service condition due to DNS
  validation taking a long time.
  Query patterns that continuously triggered cache database maintenance could
  exhaust all available memory on the host running named.
  Restore DNS64 state when handling a serve-stale timeout.
  Specific queries could trigger an assertion check with nxdomain-redirect
  enabled.
  Speed up parsing of DNS messages with many different names.
