FreeBSD : FreeBSD -- Predictable query ids in named(8) (3de342fb-40be-11dc-aeac-02e0185f8d72)

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

When named(8) is operating as a recursive DNS server or sending NOTIFY
requests to slave DNS servers, named(8) uses a predictable query id.
Impact : An attacker who can see the query id for some request(s) sent
by named(8) is likely to be able to perform DNS cache poisoning by
predicting the query id for other request(s). Workaround : No
workaround is available.
