Bind (SSA:2018-222-01) Update for Slackware

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/bind-9.10.8_P1-i586-1_slack14.2.txz: Upgraded.
Fixed a security issue where named could crash during recursive processing
of DNAME records when "deny-answer-aliases" was in use resulting in a
denial of service. Note that "deny-answer-aliases" is rarely used.
For more information, see:
(* Security fix *)
