Package: bind
Vulnerability: remote Denial of Service
Debian-specific: no
Vulnerable: yes
The version of BIND shipped with Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 is vulnerable to a remote denial of service attack, which can cause the nameserver to crash after accessing an uninitialized pointer. This problem is fixed in the current maintenance release of BIND, 8.2.2P7, and in the Debian package version 8.2.2p7-1 for both stable and unstable releases.

We recommend that all users of bind upgrade immediately.

Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 alias slink


Slink is no longer being supported by the Debian Security Team. We highly recommend an upgrade to the current stable release.

Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 (stable) alias potato


Fixes are currently available for the Alpha, ARM, Intel ia32, Motorola 680x0, PowerPC and Sun SPARC architectures, and will be included in 2.2r2.
