Low Nessus Plugin ID 42911


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Update to 9.6.1-P2 release which contains following fix: * Additional section of response could be cached without successful DNSSEC validation even if DNSSEC validation is enabled

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
