Slackware New bind packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, and 11.0 to fix denial of service security issues.
[slackware-security]  bind (SSA:2007-026-01)

New bind packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1,
10.2, and 11.0 to fix denial of service security issues.

Versions of bind-9.2.x older than bind-9.2.8, and versions of bind-9.3.x
older than 9.3.4 can be made to crash with malformed local or remote data.

More details about the issues may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-0493
  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-0494

Here are the details from the Slackware 11.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/bind-9.3.4-i486-1_slack11.0.tgz:
  Upgraded to bind-9.3.4.  This update fixes two denial of service
  vulnerabilities where an attacker could crash the name server with
  specially crafted malformed data.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-0493
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-0494
  (* Security fix *)

Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
