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.
VPR Score: 3.6
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.
DescriptionPowerDNS Team reports :
CVE-2020-25829: An issue has been found in PowerDNS Recursor where a remote attacker can cause the cached records for a given name to be updated to the 'Bogus' DNSSEC validation state, instead of their actual DNSSEC 'Secure' state, via a DNS ANY query. This results in a denial of service for installations that always validate (dnssec=validate) and for clients requesting validation when on-demand validation is enabled (dnssec=process).
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
