Summary

The remote host is missing an update to the system as announced in the referenced advisory FreeBSD-SA-08:06.bind.asc

Insight

Insight

BIND 9 is an implementation of the Domain Name System (DNS) protocols. The named(8) daemon is an Internet Domain Name Server. DNS requests contain a query id which is used to match a DNS request with the response and to make it harder for anybody but the DNS server which received the request to send a valid response. The BIND DNS implementation does not randomize the UDP source port when doing remote queries, and the query id alone does not provide adequate randomization.

Solution

Solution

Upgrade your system to the appropriate stable release or security branch dated after the correction date https://secure1.securityspace.com/smysecure/catid.html?in=FreeBSD-SA-08:06.bind.asc
