The remote host is affected by an information disclosure
The remote host answers to an ICMPv6 Node Information Query and
responds with its DNS name, the list of IPv4 addresses and the list of
IPv6 addresses to which it is bound.
An attacker can use this information to understand how the network is
architected, which may help him bypass filters.
Reconfigure the remote host so that it does not answer to these
requests. Set up filters that deny ICMP packets of type 139.
