The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
A Secunia Advisory reports :
An error exists in the handling of DNS queries where IDs are
incremented with a fixed value and are additionally used for child
processes in a forking server. This can be exploited to poison the DNS
cache of an application using the module if a valid ID is guessed.
An error in the PP implementation within the 'dn_expand()' function
can be exploited to cause a stack overflow due to an endless loop via
a specially crafted DNS packet.
