The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


Hanno Boeck discovered that incorrect validation of DNSSEC-signed records in the Bind DNS server could result in denial of service.

Updates for the oldstable distribution (wheezy) will be released shortly.


Upgrade the bind9 packages.

For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in version 9.9.5.dfsg-9+deb8u3.
