New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionPowerDNS Security Advisory reports :
An issue has been found in the DNSSEC validation component of PowerDNS Recursor, allowing an ancestor delegation NSEC or NSEC3 record to be used to wrongfully prove the non-existence of a RR below the owner name of that record. This would allow an attacker in position of man-in-the-middle to send a NXDOMAIN answer for a name that does exist.
