Slackware New bind packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, 14.1, and -current to fix a security issue. [More Info...]
[slackware-security]  bind (SSA:2014-028-01)

New bind packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, 14.1,
and -current to fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/bind-9.9.4_P2-i486-1_slack14.1.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes a defect in the handling of NSEC3-signed zones that can
  cause BIND to be crashed by a specific set of queries.
  NOTE:  According to the second link below, Slackware is probably not
  vulnerable since we aren't using glibc-2.18 yet.  Might as well fix it
  anyway, though.
  For more information, see:

    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-0591
  (* Security fix *)
