Description

Package : bind9 Version : 1:9.8.4.dfsg.P1-6+nmu2+deb7u13 CVE ID : CVE-2016-8864

Tony Finch and Marco Davids reported an assertion failure in BIND, a DNS server implementation, which causes the server process to terminate. This denial-of-service vulnerability is related to a defect in the processing of responses with DNAME records from authoritative servers and primarily affects recursive resolvers.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version 1:9.8.4.dfsg.P1-6+nmu2+deb7u13.

We recommend that you upgrade your bind9 packages.
