There has been a new release of BIND.

DNS is one of those services that should really be patched sooner than later, the fixed bug list of the release is here.

--- 9.6.2 released ---

2850.	[bug]		If isc_heap_insert() failed due to memory shortage
the heap would have corrupted entries. [RT #20951]

2849.	[bug]		Dont treat errors from the xml2 library as fatal.
[RT #20945]

2846.	[bug]		EOF on unix domain sockets was not being handled
correctly. [RT #20731]
