New bind packages are available for Slackware 14.0, 14.1, 14.2, and -current to fix security issues.

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:

patches/packages/bind-9.10.8_P1-i586-1_slack14.2.txz: Upgraded. Fixed a security issue where named could crash during recursive processing of DNAME records when "deny-answer-aliases" was in use resulting in a denial of service. Note that "deny-answer-aliases" is rarely used. For more information, see: ( Security fix )

Where to find the new packages:

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab ( for donating FTP and rsync hosting to the Slackware project! :-)
