The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200908-02
(BIND: Denial of Service)
Matthias Urlichs reported that the dns_db_findrdataset() function fails
when the prerequisite section of the dynamic update message contains a
record of type 'ANY' and where at least one RRset for this FQDN exists
on the server.
A remote unauthenticated attacker could send a specially crafted
dynamic update message to the BIND daemon (named), leading to a Denial
of Service (daemon crash). This vulnerability affects all primary
(master) servers -- it is not limited to those that are configured to
allow dynamic updates.
Configure a firewall that performs Deep Packet Inspection to prevent
nsupdate messages from reaching named. Alternatively, expose only
secondary (slave) servers to untrusted networks.

# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=net-dns/bind-9.4.3_p3'
