Description

Updated bind packages fix security vulnerability :

By making use of maliciously-constructed zones or a rogue server, an attacker can exploit an oversight in the code BIND 9 uses to follow delegations in the Domain Name Service, causing BIND to issue unlimited queries in an attempt to follow the delegation. This can lead to resource exhaustion and denial of service (up to and including termination of the named server process) (CVE-2014-8500).
