Debian Bug     : 987741 987742 987743

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in BIND, a DNS server
implementation.

CVE-2021-25214

    Greg Kuechle discovered that a malformed incoming IXFR transfer
    could trigger an assertion failure in named, resulting in denial
    of service.

CVE-2021-25215

    Siva Kakarla discovered that named could crash when a DNAME record
    placed in the ANSWER section during DNAME chasing turned out to be
    the final answer to a client query.

CVE-2021-25216

    It was discovered that the SPNEGO implementation used by BIND is
    prone to a buffer overflow vulnerability. This update switches to
    use the SPNEGO implementation from the Kerberos libraries.

For the stable distribution (buster), these problems have been fixed in
version 1:9.11.5.P4+dfsg-5.1+deb10u5.

We recommend that you upgrade your bind9 packages.
