Slackware New bind packages are available for Slackware 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, and -current to fix security issues. [More Info...]
[slackware-security]  bind (SSA:2012-209-01)

New bind packages are available for Slackware 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-9.7.6_P2-i486-1_slack13.37.txz:  Upgraded.
  Prevents a named assert (crash) when validating caused by using
  "Bad cache" data before it has been initialized.  [RT #30025]
  ISC_QUEUE handling for recursive clients was updated to address a
  race condition that could cause a memory leak.  This rarely occurred
  with UDP clients, but could be a significant problem for a server
  handling a steady rate of TCP queries.  [RT #29539 & #30233]
  Under heavy incoming TCP query loads named could experience a
  memory leak which could lead to significant reductions in query
  response or cause the server to be terminated on systems with
  "out of memory" killers. [RT #29539]
  A condition has been corrected where improper handling of zero-length
  RDATA could cause undesirable behavior, including termination of
  the named process.  [RT #29644]
  (* Security fix *)
