Synopsis :

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

Description :

ISC reports :

Parsing a malformed DNSSEC key can cause a validating resolver to exit
due to a failed assertion in buffer.c. It is possible for a remote
attacker to deliberately trigger this condition, for example by using
a query which requires a response from a zone containing a
deliberately malformed key.
