It was discovered that there was a potential denial of service (DoS)
in bind9, the popular Domain Name Server (DNS) server.

Shoham Danino, Anat Bremler-Barr, Yehuda Afek and Yuval Shavitt
discovered that a flaw in the cache-cleaning algorithm used in named
can cause that named's configured cache size limit can be
significantly exceeded, potentially resulting in a denial of service
attack.

For Debian 10 buster, this problem has been fixed in version
1:9.11.5.P4+dfsg-5.1+deb10u9.

We recommend that you upgrade your bind9 packages.
