ISC is aware of several bugs which can result in serious vulnerabilities in
BIND as distributed by ISC.  More information about these vulnerabilities
can be found here:

http://www.isc.org/products/BIND/bind-security.html

Upgrading to BIND version 9.2.1 is strongly recommended.  However, patches
for BIND 8.3.3, 8.2.6 and 4.9.10 are now publicly available from ISC and new
BIND 4 & 8 releases will be published in the next day or two .

You can find the patches here:
