November 17, 1999

The version bind that was distributed in Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 has a vulnerability in the processing of NXT records that can be used by an attacked in a Debian of Service attack or theoretically be exploited to gain access to the server.

This has been fixed in version 8.2.5p5-0slink1, and we recommend that you upgrade your bind package immediately.
