CVE: CVE-2015-1349


Updated bind packages fix security vulnerability:

Jan-Piet Mens discovered that the BIND DNS server would crash when processing
an invalid DNSSEC key rollover, either due to an error on the zone operator's
part, or due to interference with network traffic by an attacker. This issue
affects configurations with the directives "dnssec-lookaside auto;" (as
enabled in the Mageia default configuration) or "dnssec-validation auto;"
