[slackware-security] bind (SSA:2017-041-01)

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

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/bind-9.10.4_P6-i586-1_slack14.2.txz: Upgraded.
This update fixes a denial-of-service vulnerability. Under some conditions
when using both DNS64 and RPZ to rewrite query responses, query processing
can resume in an inconsistent state leading to either an INSIST assertion
failure or an attempt to read through a NULL pointer.
For more information, see:
(* Security fix *)

Where to find the new packages:

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab

to the Slackware project! :-)
