    Details:
    
    USN-4365-1 fixed several vulnerabilities in Bind. This update provides
    the corresponding update for Ubuntu 12.04 ESM and 14.04 ESM.
    Original advisory details:
    
     Lior Shafir, Yehuda Afek, and Anat Bremler-Barr discovered that Bind
     incorrectly limited certain fetches. A remote attacker could possibly use
     this issue to cause Bind to consume resources, leading to a denial of
     service, or possibly use Bind to perform a reflection attack.
     (CVE-2020-8616)
    
     Tobias Klein discovered that Bind incorrectly handled checking TSIG
     validity. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause Bind to crash,
     resulting in a denial of service, or possibly perform other attacks.
     (CVE-2020-8617)
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 14.04 ESM:
      bind9                           1:9.9.5.dfsg-3ubuntu0.19+esm2
    
    Ubuntu 12.04 ESM:
      bind9                           1:9.8.1.dfsg.P1-4ubuntu0.30
    
    In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
