High Nessus Plugin ID 31832


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


If the system random number generator can be predicted by its past output, then an attacker may spoof Recursor to accept mallicious data.
This leads to DNS cache poisoning and client redirection.


Update the affected package.
