Details

Florian Maury discovered that Bind incorrectly handled delegation. A remote
attacker could possibly use this issue to cause Bind to consume resources
and crash, resulting in a denial of service.

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 14.10
Ubuntu 14.04
Ubuntu 12.04
Ubuntu 10.04

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
