==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 14.04 ESM

Summary:

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

Software Description:
- bind9: Internet Domain Name Server

Details:

USN-3956-1 fixed a vulnerability in Bind. This update provides
the corresponding update for Ubuntu 12.04 ESM and Ubuntu 14.04 ESM.

Original advisory details:

 It was discovered that Bind incorrectly handled limiting the number of
 simultaneous TCP clients. A remote attacker could possibly use this
 issue to cause Bind to consume resources, leading to a denial of
 service.

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

Ubuntu 14.04 ESM:
  bind9                           1:9.9.5.dfsg-3ubuntu0.19+esm1

Ubuntu 12.04 ESM:

changes.
