The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
Jonathan Claudius reports :
RubyGems provides the ability of a domain to direct clients to a
separate host that is used to fetch gems and make API calls against.
This mechanism is implemented via DNS, specifically a SRV record
_rubygems._tcp under the original requested domain.
RubyGems did not validate the hostname returned in the SRV record
before sending requests to it. This left clients open to a DNS hijack
attack, whereby an attacker could return a SRV of their choosing and
get the client to use it.
