Description

It was discovered that BIND, a DNS server, hangs while constructing the additional section of a DNS reply, when certain combinations of resource records are present. This vulnerability affects both recursive and authoritative servers.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 1:9.7.3.dfsg-1~squeeze8.

We recommend that you upgrade your bind9 packages.
