FreeBSD : bind8 negative cache poison attack (f04cc5cb-2d0b-11d8-beaf-000a95c4d922)

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

A programming error in BIND 8 named can result in a DNS message being
incorrectly cached as a negative response. As a result, an attacker
may arrange for malicious DNS messages to be delivered to a target
name server, and cause that name server to cache a negative response
for some target domain name. The name server would thereafter respond
negatively to legitimate queries for that domain name, resulting in a
denial-of-service for applications that require DNS.
