[slackware-security] bind (SSA:2015-349-01)

New bind packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, 14.1,
and -current to fix security issues.

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/bind-9.9.8_P2-x86_64-1_slack14.1.txz: Upgraded.
This update fixes three security issues:
Update allowed OpenSSL versions as named is potentially vulnerable
to CVE-2015-3193.
Insufficient testing when parsing a message allowed records with an
incorrect class to be be accepted, triggering a REQUIRE failure when
those records were subsequently cached. (CVE-2015-8000)
Address fetch context reference count handling error on socket error.
For more information, see:
(* Security fix *)
