In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2017-3142, CVE-2017-3143.
More information:
  • CVE-2017-3142

    An attacker who is able to send and receive messages to an authoritative DNS server and who has knowledge of a valid TSIG key name may be able to circumvent TSIG authentication of AXFR requests via a carefully constructed request packet. A server that relies solely on TSIG keys for protection with no other ACL protection could be manipulated into:

    • providing an AXFR of a zone to an unauthorized recipient
    • accepting bogus NOTIFY packets
  • CVE-2017-3143

    An attacker who is able to send and receive messages to an authoritative DNS server and who has knowledge of a valid TSIG key name for the zone and service being targeted may be able to manipulate BIND into accepting an unauthorized dynamic update.

For Debian 7 Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 1:9.8.4.dfsg.P1-6+nmu2+deb7u17.

We recommend that you upgrade your bind9 packages.
