New bind packages are available for Slackware 12.1, 12.2, 13.0, 13.1, 13.37,
14.0, and -current to fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/bind-9.9.3_P2-i486-1_slack14.0.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes a security issue where a specially crafted query can cause
  BIND to terminate abnormally, resulting in a denial of service.
