bind9 vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 15.10
- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Summary:

Bind could be made to crash if it received specially crafted network
traffic.

Software Description:
- bind9: Internet Domain Name Server

Details:

It was discovered that Bind incorrectly handled input received by the rndc
control channel. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause
Bind to crash, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2016-1285)

It was discovered that Bind incorrectly parsed resource record signatures
for DNAME resource records. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue
to cause Bind to crash, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2016-1286)

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 15.10:
  bind9                           1:9.9.5.dfsg-11ubuntu1.3
