[slackware-security]  bind (SSA:2011-189-01)

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


Here are the details from the Slackware 13.37 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/bind-9.7.3_P3-i486-1_slack13.37.txz:  Upgraded.
  A specially constructed packet will cause BIND 9 ("named") to exit,
  affecting DNS service.  The issue exists in BIND 9.6.3 and newer.
   "Change #2912 (see CHANGES) exposed a latent bug in the DNS message
    processing code that could allow certain UPDATE requests to crash
    named. This was fixed by disambiguating internal database
    representation vs DNS wire format data. [RT #24777] [CVE-2011-2464]"
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2011-2464
  (* Security fix *)
