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: 4.2
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.
DescriptionA programming error in BIND 8 named can result in a DNS message being incorrectly cached as a negative response. As a result, an attacker may arrange for malicious DNS messages to be delivered to a target name server, and cause that name server to cache a negative response for some target domain name. The name server would thereafter respond negatively to legitimate queries for that domain name, resulting in a denial-of-service for applications that require DNS.
