-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 [slackware-security] bind (SSA:2014-028-01) New bind packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, 14.1, and -current to fix a security issue. Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog: +--------------------------+ patches/packages/bind-9.9.4_P2-i486-1_slack14.1.txz: Upgraded. This update fixes a defect in the handling of NSEC3-signed zones that can cause BIND to be crashed by a specific set of queries. NOTE: According to the second link below, Slackware is probably not vulnerable since we aren't using glibc-2.18 yet. Might as well fix it anyway, though. 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! :-) Also see the "Get Slack" section on for additional mirror sites near you.
