  • patches/packages/bind-9.7.6_P2-i486-1_slack12.2.tgz
    Prevents a named assert (crash) when validating caused by using
    “Bad cache” data before it has been initialized. [RT #30025]
    ISC_QUEUE handling for recursive clients was updated to address a
    race condition that could cause a memory leak. This rarely occurred
    with UDP clients, but could be a significant problem for a server
    handling a steady rate of TCP queries. [RT #29539 & #30233]
    Under heavy incoming TCP query loads named could experience a
    memory leak which could lead to significant reductions in query
    response or cause the server to be terminated on systems with
    “out of memory” killers. [RT #29539]
    A condition has been corrected where improper handling of zero-length
    RDATA could cause undesirable behavior, including termination of
    the named process. [RT #29644]
    (* Security fix *)
