bind 9.2.1 assertion failure

ISC who makes bind doesn't support it any longer.  Mark is with ISC.

What do you have this installed on?  It may be something distro specific and if so you may need to get you question answered by whoever provided it to you.

For example RedHat Enterprise Linux distributes a modified version of BIND 9.3.x which is also no longer supported by ISC.  If you wanted mitigation for the recent attack you'd have to install RedHat's fix to their version.  (Alternatively you can download and compile the ISC supported version but at that point RedHat would no longer support your version of BIND.)

Uhm, there are multiple sources for BIND support.  At least one still
provides some coverage for BIND 9.2.
