The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200708-06
(Net::DNS: Multiple vulnerabilities)
hjp discovered an error when handling DNS query IDs which make them
partially predictable. Steffen Ullrich discovered an error in the
dn_expand() function which could lead to an endless loop.
A remote attacker could send a specially crafted DNS request to the
server which could result in a Denial of Service with an infinite
recursion, or perform a cache poisoning attack.
There is no known workaround at this time.
