New bind packages are available for Slackware 12.1, 12.2, 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, and -current to fix security issues.

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.0 ChangeLog:

patches/packages/bind-9.9.2_P1-i486-1_slack14.0.txz: Upgraded. IMPORTANT NOTE: This package updates BIND from 9.7.6_P4 to 9.8.4_P1 since the 9.7 series is no longer supported. It is possible that some changes may be required to your local configuration. This release addresses some denial-of-service and other bugs. For more information, see: ( Security fix )
