bind9 vulnerability

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 20.10
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

Bind could be made to crash or run programs if it received specially
crafted network traffic.

Software Description:
- bind9: Internet Domain Name Server


It was discovered that Bind incorrectly handled GSSAPI security policy
negotiation. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause Bind to crash,
resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code. In
the default installation, attackers would be isolated by the Bind AppArmor
