[slackware-security]  bind (SSA:2015-209-01)

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-9.9.7_P2-i486-1_slack14.1.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes a security issue where an error in the handling of TKEY
  queries can be exploited by an attacker for use as a denial-of-service
  vector, as a constructed packet can use the defect to trigger a REQUIRE
  assertion failure, causing BIND to exit.
  Impact:
  Both recursive and authoritative servers are vulnerable to this defect.
  Additionally, exposure is not prevented by either ACLs or configuration
  options limiting or denying service because the exploitable code occurs
  early in the packet handling, before checks enforcing those boundaries.
  Operators should take steps to upgrade to a patched version as soon as
  possible.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2015-5477
    https://kb.isc.org/article/AA-01272
  (* Security fix *)
