Package : bind9 Version : 9.7.3.dfsg-1~squeeze15 CVE ID : CVE-2015-4620 Debian Bug : 791715

A vulnerability has been found in the Internet Domain Name Server bind9:


Breno Silveira Soares of Servico Federal de Processamento de Dados (SERPRO)
discovered that the BIND DNS server is prone to a denial of service
vulnerability. A remote attacker who can cause a validating resolver
to query a zone containing specifically constructed contents can
cause the resolver to terminate with an assertion failure, resulting
in a denial of service to clients relying on the resolver.

For the squeeze distribution, these issues have been fixed in version 9.7.3.dfsg-1~squeeze15 of bind9.

We recommend that you upgrade your bind9 packages.
