[slackware-security]  bind (SSA:2011-224-01)

New bind packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2,
11.0, 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, and -current to fix security issues.


Here are the details from the Slackware 13.37 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/bind-9.7.4-i486-1_slack13.37.txz:  Upgraded.
  This BIND update addresses a couple of security issues:
  * named, set up to be a caching resolver, is vulnerable to a user
    querying a domain with very large resource record sets (RRSets)
    when trying to negatively cache the response. Due to an off-by-one
    error, caching the response could cause named to crash. [RT #24650]
    [CVE-2011-1910]
  * Change #2912 (see CHANGES) exposed a latent bug in the DNS message
    processing code that could allow certain UPDATE requests to crash
    named. [RT #24777] [CVE-2011-2464]
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2011-1910
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2011-2464
  (* Security fix *)
