The remote host is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability.
The remote lpd daemon seems to be vulnerable to a buffer overflow when
a host with a too long DNS host name connects to it.
*** Nessus solely relied on the version of the remote
*** operating system to issue an alert, so this
*** might be a false positive.
