CVE-2009-0696 bind: DoS (assertion failure) via nsupdate packets
A flaw was found in the way BIND handles dynamic update message
packets containing the 'ANY' record type. A remote attacker could use
this flaw to send a specially crafted dynamic update packet that could
cause named to exit with an assertion failure. (CVE-2009-0696)
Note: even if named is not configured for dynamic updates, receiving
such a specially crafted dynamic update packet could still cause named
to exit unexpectedly.
After installing the update, the BIND daemon (named) will be restarted
