####################################################################
# NOTICE OF INPENDING EOL (END OF LIFE) FOR OLD SLACKWARE VERSIONS #
# #
# Effective August 1, 2012, security patches will no longer be #
# provided for the following versions of Slackware (which will all #
# be more than 5 years old at that time): #
# Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, 11.0, 12.0. #
# If you are still running these versions you should consider #
# migrating to a newer version (preferably as recent as possible). #
# Alternately, you may make arrangements to handle your own #
# security patches. If for some reason you are unable to upgrade #
# or handle your own security patches, limited security support #
# may be available for a fee. Inquire at [email protected] #

  • patches/packages/bind-9.7.6_P1-i486-1_slack10.2.tgz
    This release fixes an issue that could crash BIND, leading to a denial of
    service. It also fixes the so-called “ghost names attack” whereby a
    remote attacker may trigger continued resolvability of revoked domain names.
    For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2012-1033
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2012-1667
    IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a upgraded version of BIND, _not_ a patched one.
    It is likely to be more strict about the correctness of configuration files.
    Care should be taken about deploying this upgrade on production servers to
    avoid an unintended interruption of service.
    (* Security fix *)
