Package        : dnsruby
Version        : 1.54-2+deb8u1
Debian Bug     : 908887


dnsruby is a feature-complete DNS(SEC) client for Ruby. It ships the DNS
Root Key Signing Key (KSK), used as trust anchor to validate the
authenticity of DNS records. This update includes the latest KSK
(KSK-2017), that will be used by ICANN to sign the Root Zone today, 11
October 2018.

For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
1.54-2+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your dnsruby packages.
