Problem Description:

 A buffer overflow vulnerability exists in different implementations of
 the DNS resolver libraries.  A remote attacker able to sent malicious
 DNS responses could potentially exploit this vulnerability to execute
 arbitrary code or cause a DoS (Denial of Service) on a vulnerable
 system.  The named daemon itself is not vulnerable to this problem, but
 this latest version of bind 8 includes fixes to the DNS resolver
 libraries.
